The third conference focusing on swine in biomedical research was held at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago from January 27 to 29, 2005. The conference identified areas of study or methodologies that would enhance the utility of pigs as biomedical models. Over 150 scientists from around the world convened to focus on identifying appropriate human diseases where traditional rodent models have not proven relevant. The progress since last conference focusing on relevant physiological comparisons between pigs and humans were also discussed.
