The goal of the conference is to bring together individuals who are developing and utilizing swine as models for studying human health and disease. This conference focuses exclusively on swine models and as such is the premier meeting for investigators who use and/or develop this species as models for biomedical research.

The Swine in Biomedical Research Conference 2014 represents the fifth in a series of conferences that have highlighted the utility of the pig as a large animal model in biomedical research..
