The oncology and genetics research theme combines the Department of Veterinary Medicine’ strengths in clinical oncology with its expertise and legacy in the molecular genetics of animal species. Through strategic collaborations with the Sanger Institute and the Cancer Research Institute in Cambridge, researchers are exploring opportunities to understand the genetic basis for many naturally occurring cancers of domestic animals, and drive translational breakthroughs through our internationally recognized oncology referral practice.
