Tuesday, March 25, 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM in room 101C
Minipigs are a commonly used species in biomedical research. The structure and anatomy of the eye resembles that of humans and makes minipigs a suitable model for studies where direct dosing to the ocular structures is required. This session will present detail about the practical aspects of such studies.
