Featured Sus Clinicals Events at SBR 2024

Experts from Sus Clinicals will attend the 8th Swine in Biomedical Research Conference taking place June 14-18, 2024 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

Dr. Kyle Schachtschneider (Sus Clinicals VP of R&D and Services) and Dr. Larry Schook (Chief Scientific Officer) are co-chairing the upcoming Swine in Biomedical Research Conference (SBR 2024) alongside Dhanansayan (Dhanu) Shanmuganayagam and Adrienne Antonson.

The conference will take place June 14-18, 2024 at the lakeside University of Wisconsin-Madison. Since its inception in 1995, advances from the sequencing of the pig genome to the recent evolution of gene editing technologies have dramatically changed the landscape of porcine models. SBR 2022 welcomed a new era of translational research in pigs, that promises to accelerate the discovery and development of clinically relevant therapies and technologies. SBR 2024 will advance this mission and continue to foster collaborations between clinicians, biomedical researchers and animal scientists, and spark partnerships with the biomedical industry.

The planned sessions will:

  • Identify unmet clinical needs and existing gaps in research.
  • Showcase porcine models and reveal their strengths and limitations.
  • Highlight innovative use of models for tackling clinical problems.
  • Discuss novel tools for advancing biomedical swine research.
  • Explore the need for biomedical swine research facilities, resources and expertise.
