Update Mid Year-3 – Innovations in Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Cancer

This research update provides information mid-year 3 of a 3-year project looking at prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer in dogs. Principle investigators are Modiano, Breen, and Lindblad-Toh.

This project has completed the first thirty months. We have made new and exciting discoveries that will help us to understand mechanisms of tumor progression and response to therapy, and we have created the infrastructure to integrate clinical performance and outcome data with the molecular properties of the tumors and their microenvironment interactions.
