Discovery drives the human race to new heights each day.

Explorers in all fields have made our lives and world better through their courage to venture into new frontiers and beyond. Yet, their ability to discover has always relied on the proper vehicle to propel them from theory to reality.

Until now, researchers have lacked animal models that faithfully  represent human diseases. As a result, a sizeable barrier has blocked progress in the discovery of human disease mechanisms; novel diagnostics, procedures, devices, prevention strategies and  therapeutics; and the ability to predict in humans the efficacy of those next-generation procedures, devices, and therapeutics.
