When you support Animal Cancer Foundation initiatives, like the Canine Cancer Genome Project (CCGP), you’re supporting groundbreaking research to speed the discovery of better treatments for both people and pets, giving the one-in-three women, one-in-two men, one-in-four dogs, and one-in-five cats diagnosed more time, more choices, and the hope of defeating cancer today.
Animal Cancer Foundation—Uniting Pet and Human Research for a Cure®
Sponsored by the Blue Buffalo Foundation, this groundbreaking initiative seeks to map the tumor genomes of the most common types of canine cancer. Because our pets need more effective treatment and because the cancers most common in dogs are very similar to those in people, deepening cancer researchers’ understanding of these canine cancers allows comparison of the genetic makeup of tumors of people and pets to search for new targeted therapies and a cure.
Since 1999, Animal Cancer Foundation—
a national 501(c)(3) organization—remains dedicated to funding scientists committed to understanding and sharing the studies that link canine cancer to human cancer.
Animal Cancer Foundation's comparative oncology research awards and scientific meeting sponsorships are guided by the leadership of the scientific advisory council and board of directors and have led to advancements in the field.
