We have developed a broad range of animal models in order to test and validate intervention strategies such as vaccines. These models offer insights into the pathogenesis of a disease and enable us to assess the effectiveness of intervention strategies. In order to replicate the situation in the field as closely as possible, animal models for diseases are ideally based on natural infection routes. In addition to the animal models listed here, we have a broad range of expertise with many other models listed in the European Pharmacopoeia that are used to test live and inactivated vaccines.
