New insights in cancer care for human and animal patients
Comparative oncology is a growing area of cancer research that examines naturally occurring cancers in cats and dogs to better understand cancer in animal and human patients.
Human cancer and similar forms of the disease in companion animals share many features, including progression patterns and treatment response. Through comparative oncology, Tufts researchers are gaining valuable insights into cancers common in animals and people, including lymphoma and bone cancer.
With highly regarded schools of veterinary and traditional medicine, and a prime location in the biomedical hub of Boston, Tufts is poised to make significant contributions in comparative oncology. Join us in our efforts to transform cancer care for people and companion animals. Make a gift today.
