Hunting with the Hounds: How Dogs Lead the Way in the Search for Effective Cancer Therapies

Leading professors shed light on their research in the arts, sciences, and social sciences at the Penn Cafés. Engage our best and brightest in stimulating conversation during a Q&A following each talk.

In this Penn Science Café talk, researcher Nicola Mason, an assistant professor at Penn Vet, will discuss the remarkable similarities between human and canine cancers. She will share the story behind how human and veterinary medical scientists at Penn forged an alliance that has seen the latest, state-of-the-art therapies evaluated in clinical trials using pet dogs with spontaneous cancers — with results that hold promise for both human and canine cancer patients.
