"We are absolutely delighted to receive this award from the Animal Cancer Foundation. This award supports our on-going work developing genetically re-directed T cells to provide complete and durable remission in dogs with B cell lymphoma."
Oregon State University-Ramsey Lab, and Shay Bracha DVM, MS, DACVIM (Oncology), OSU College of Veterinary Medicine
"The grant will enable us to leverage the power of genomics technologies and comparative oncology to develop predictive models of how a canine malignancy will respond to chemotherapeutic treatment, based on the tumor's molecular profile."
The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital and Assistant Professor, The Ohio State University College of Medicine
“Kids and animals often develop very similar types of cancer. When pediatricians, scientists, and veterinarians work together, research can improve treatments not only for children, but for their ‘best friends’ too.”
DVM, MS, DACVIM (Oncology), Director of Clinical Trials, Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center
"The grant allows our team to investigate the effects of AF in tumor-bearing dogs to establish a biologically effective dose, which has near-term benefit in the treatment of dogs with lymphoma and is a translational model for human cancer."
DVM, PhD, Assistant Professor of Comparative and Radiation Oncology, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University
“By bridging human & veterinary medicine at Tufts, we have created a unique opportunity to promote cancer research to benefit both pets and people. With ACF's help, we can advance our studies & demonstrate the value in this approach.”
DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVIM (Oncology Specialty) Dolores L. McCall Professor of Comparative Oncology, Purdue University
"Bladder cancer has not been a focus of human studies, but the ACF-supported work in dogs is now providing strong justification to consider this approach for human bladder cancer as well as other human cancers."
