Tim Williams and Shubha Anand and colleagues from the Cambridge Cancer Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory have been awarded £9,750 by the PetPlan Charitable Trust to investigate if shallow whole genome sequencing (sWGS) performed on cells obtained by fine needle aspiration and on cell free DNA in blood can be used to diagnose cancer in dogs.

Jack Lawson (Royal Veterinary College) and Tim Williams have been awarded a grant for ~£7,500 to investigate the role of extracellular vesicle associated aminopeptidase N as a marker and potential mediator of feline hypertension". This project will expand on a recently published hypothesis generating study ( which discovered an association between aminopeptidase N and hypertension in cats, and could lead to the identification of novel pathophysiological mechanisms and biomarkers for hypertension in cats.
