Genetically engineered mouse models have contributed extensively to the field of cancer research. The ability to manipulate the mouse germline affords numerous approaches toward understanding the complexities of this disease, possibly providing accurate preclinical models for therapeutic and diagnostic advances. This review highlights some of the current strategies for modeling cancer in the mouse, recent accomplishments, and key remaining challenges.
