Fighting Cancer in Dogs and Humans

It’s Pet Cancer Awareness Month and Cornell is on the front lines. Tune in to hear about the university’s cross-campus translational research and precision medicine approach that’s enhancing how we understand and treat lymphoma in both dogs and humans.  

What can we learn from canines’ accelerated lives and cancer fights to help people? How will understanding the metabolic changes in our (and our companion's) body help us treat cancer? What is a biobank and why are dogs and people donating samples? How is Cornell Vet and Weill Cornell Medicine coming together in the fight against lymphoma? Join us for a lively conversation to hear the answers and learn more!

“In the long run, we hope to use this research beneficially for both dogs and humans...If you learn something about human cancer, maybe we can also apply it to our canine companions, and help them live longer, healthier lives.” —Dr. Krumsiek
