Cancer Biology  
 
     
The study of cancer cell function is the foundation for the development of new diagnostics and treatments. The Cancer Biology Research Core studies the fundamentals of molecular cancer biology including carcinogenesis and chemoprevention, cancer risk assessment, cancer diagnosis and experimental therapeutics. This multi-departmental and multi-college program involves both basic cancer research as well as translational and clinical research.   Cancer Cell
 

The first Cancer Biology PhD Program in the country is a fundamental portion of this research core. A select few veterinarians and scientists are chosen to work toward a PhD in cancer biology at the Animal Cancer Center under the direction of world-renowned experts. The goal is to train the next generation of cancer scientists/veterinary cancer specialists to be successful in academia and industry.

  Canine Genetics  
     
  The study of cancer genetics is the next frontier in cancer research. We are in the process of hiring a new faculty member to develop a cancer genetics core and to develop a full research program in this area. The availability of the full sequencing of both the canine and human genomes creates a unique opportunity to further develop the translational benefits of research on canine cancers. Research shows that the canine genome has some similarities to humans in terms of cancer gene families and thus dogs are a good model to study to benefit both dogs and humans.
