Ellen Silbergeld, PhD

Presented by Sherry J. Morgan, DVM, PhD, ACVP, ABT, ABVT joined Abbott/AbbVie, Inc. in 1990. She currently serves a dual role as a pathologist and a Director of Scientific Projects, providing toxicology and pathology guidance for Discovery and Development projects. Dr. Morgan also provides interpretative nonclinical risk assessment summaries of numerous potential in-licensing compounds, helping to guide the selection process of novel compounds. She is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists, the American Board of Veterinary Toxicologists, and the American Board of Toxicology. Her publication list includes approximately 30 journal articles, 20 book chapters, and 30 abstracts/posters. Topics on the use of animal models span therapeutic indications including oncology, joint diseases, neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disease, and endocrine and metabolic diseases. She also has contributed to the validation of non-invasive imaging technologies using traditional pathology endpoints. In this presentation, the rationale for the use of animal models of disease will be discussed as it pertains to different adverse drug reactions for which there is relatively low predictability with conventional animal models. Some of the possible reasons for lack of concordance between different organ systems will be covered as well. The presentation will conclude with general recommendations when considering using an animal model of animal disease as well as some examples of studies involving animal models of disease.
