DrKristyRichardsThis fascinating discussion will be led by veterinary onocologist Dr. Avenelle Turner, DVM Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology) from the Veterinary Cancer Center in Southern California and Dr. Kristy Richards, MD, PhD at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Department of Genetics.Drs. Turner and Richards will discuss how cancer in animals mimics the same disease in people and you’ll learn how cancer similarities between humans and dogs are identified and lead to new treatments for both species. For example, over 30 years ago bone marrow transplants were first developed for dogs, then subsequently done in people with lymphoma.

As comparative oncology research awareness grows and more study collaborations occur between academic researchers and pharmaceutical companies, more treatments will be found for pets and people alike.
