Book Description

Handbook of Mouse Mutations with Skin and Hair Abnormalities presents 48 mouse mutations that are all available to the biomedical community. Many of the mouse mutations with dermatological diseases are reviewed and illustrated in detail. This popular reference book gives you a single source to use when determining which mouse mutation will best serve your needs as a biomedical tool for sophisticated research projects.

The book also includes an overview of domestic animal genodermatoses to provide alternatives to mouse models that do not exist or to complement those that do. A detailed section written by renowned experts compares the biology of human and mouse skin and skin diseases in the areas of development and the use of animal models, mammalian genetics, keratin biochemistry, epidermal and hair follicle cycles and kinetics, cytokines and growth factors, keratinocyte culture systems, cutaneous carcinogenesis, cutaneous immune system, and skin changes associated with mutations of the endocrine system.

John P. Sundberg, D.V.M., Ph.D., is Head of the Pathology program at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. Dr. Sundberg graduated in 1973 from the University of Vermont with a B.S. degree in Animal Science (summa cum laude) and obtained his D.V.M. degree in 1977 from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, West Lafayette, Indiana. Following a brief period in private practice. Dr. Sundberg earned a Ph.D. degree in comparative pathology in 1981 from The University of Connecticut in Storrs. Dr. Sundberg served as an assistant professor at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine from 1981 to 1986. In 1986 he assumed his present position. Dr. Sundberg is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, Society for Investigative Dermatology, Hair Research Society, New England Veterinary Pathology Colloquy, and the Maine Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Sundberg has been the recipient of research grants from the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, National Alopecia Areata Foundation, and private industry. He has published over 125 research and clinical papers, 50 technical bulletins, and 15 book chapters. His current major research interests relate to mouse mutations as models of human and animal diseases, the comparative pathology and molecular evolution of nonhuman papillomaviruses, and spontaneous diseases of inbred laboratory mice.
