Dr. Fred Beasley provides an overview of study design, criteria for defining your study aim and expert advice for selecting the ideal rodent model for your preclinical obesity research.

During this presentation, Dr. Fred Beasley will give a broad-level overview of the factors to consider when deciding on an appropriate preclinical rodent model for studying obesity and its treatments. It will feature an overview of trends in obesity and associated illnesses, and the role of pharmacological intervention. Dr. Beasley will discuss criteria for establishing a study’s aims and review commonly used rodent models obesity, addressing both genetically inherited and diet-induced animal models. The webinar will conclude with additional considerations for improving your study design.
