Welcome to the Animal Cancer Care
and Research Program


Our Mission
to advance knowledge and translate it into delivery of care to reduce the incidence of cancer and its impact in human and animal patients.

ACCR Vision
A world without cancer

To achieve this vision, we will enable leadership and facilitate interaction among researchers and clinicians to improve detection, diagnosis, treatment, quality of life, and outcomes.

Program Goals

  • Identify and characterize causes and behavior of cancers that affect humans and animals
  • Learn from models of naturally occurring cancers that occupy the interphase between rodents and humans
  • Seek outcomes that benefit humans and companion animals alike

The Animal Cancer Care and Research program is a cornerstone of the Comparative Medicine Signature Program at the College of Veterinary Medicine, as well as a Developmental Research Program at the Masonic Cancer Center
