Proceedings from the “Genes, Dogs, and Cancer” Meetings

Genes, Dogs, and Cancer” is an international meeting that brings together scientists working on all aspects of canine and comparative cancer medicine and biology. The meeting objectives are to disseminate new findings on the molecular basis of cancer pathogenesis, prevention, and treatment in dogs, and the applications of this knowledge to cancers in humans. Each meeting was sponsored by The AKC Canine Health Foundation with financial assistance from various corporations and non-profit clubs and foundations.

The meetings consist of presentations by invited scientists who are leaders in the field, as well as plenary and poster sessions for young investigators.
