Oncology Grants

In continuation of our strong support of canine cancer research, the Oncology Research Program remains committed to the promotion of innovative research that will aid in the discovery of advanced diagnostic technology and therapeutic target identification.

There is new evidence that we must deepen our understanding of the heterogeneous nature of tumors in order to make progress in the battle against canine cancer. Included in tumor heterogeneity is the presence of cancer stem cells which are thought to support tumor progression, metastasis and impair susceptibility to chemotherapeutic intervention. In order to make sense of the complexity of cancer, new approaches are needed to provide comprehensive characterization of tumors. These approaches will likely require broad bioinformatic analyses, high throughput methodologies and systems biology tools.
