The unit/platform has strong background in oncology and counts with different type of cancer mouse models, all of them monitorable by means of bioluminescence imaging. They include subcutaneous models in a great variety of cancer types (prostate, colon, breast, pancreas, kidney, etc.) and also orthtopic and experimental metastasismodels.
The unit/platform can also set-up and validate novel xenograft models upon request.
