Comparative Oncology

In basic terms, ​​Comparative Oncology is the practice of comparing cancer in animals with cancer in humans.  The scientists and doctors are looking for correlations in triggers, (environmental or genetic) similarities in symptoms, response to medical and holistic options and working with these results to come up with better treatments, and ultimately find a cure. Cornell University, home to The Baker Institute for Animal Health, is  part of a 19 school consortium that works with these clinical trials in comparative oncology.  Please see the following links for more information and interesting facts about these programs.
