In continuation of CHF’s strong support of canine cancer research, the Oncology Research Program Area remains committed to innovative research that will aid in the discovery of advanced diagnostic technology and therapeutic target identification.
To make sense of the complexity of cancer, new approaches are needed to provide comprehensive characterization of tumors and other canine cancers. These approaches will likely require broad bioinformatic analyses, high throughput methodologies and systems biology tools.
