Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
Definition: Gene expression is the term used to describe the transcription of the information contained within the DNA, the repository of genetic information, into messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules that are then translated into the proteins that perform most of the critical functions of cells.
The proper and harmonious expression of a large number of genes is a critical component of normal growth and development and the maintenance of proper health. Disruptions or changes in gene expression are responsible for many diseases.
Participate in canine health research by providing samples or by enrolling in a clinical trial. Samples are needed from healthy dogs and dogs affected by specific diseases.
Search our research portfolio to see what research we are funding on a particular disease.
When you make a memorial donation we will post a photo of your dog to our Celebration Wall gallery.
