Animal Models of Human Disease book cover

Animal Models of Human Disease

Animal experiments have contributed much to our understanding of mechanisms of disease and are important for determining new therapies. This volume reviews the latest research and developments in this field.

Researchers in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology and genetics.
