NIH Meeting on Rat Model Priorities

Cover of ReportThe purpose of the NIH Rat Model Priority Meeting, held May 3, 1999, on the campus of NIH, was to discuss, the opportunities that rat models offer and the investments that are needed to capitalize on these opportunities. The major issues addressed at the meeting were: where does rat model fit in the broader scientific picture, what unique value does the rat model provide, what are the key areas of opportunity for investment, and what will be the impact of these proposed investments. Participants were charged by Dr. Harold Varmus, Director of NIH, to prepare a report that contains a summary of the major themes and recommendations, a sense of priorities, and a practical look at costs. The report from this meeting is presented here.
