Your gift to our research program enhances our ability to search for better cancer treatments for the future. Each day, our pharmacologists, molecular oncologists, cancer biologists, and immunologists learn essential information to help in the development of new cancer therapies. Their labs search for genetic information to explore cancer’s weaknesses and test new ways to take advantage of those findings at the most basic levels. Breakthroughs lead to clinical trials, which lead to better treatment options. With your support, we can build our basic research program to continue to unlock the mysteries of cancer on our way to finding a cure.
Comparative Oncology Research
For nearly four decades, the Flint Animal Cancer Center has been at the forefront of understanding the fundamental mechanisms of cancer biology, disease diagnosis, and the development of effective therapies. Our comparative oncology research program houses ten laboratories, 14 areas of research and includes 50+ team members, all on a mission to conquer cancer in all species. We invite you to partner with us in our journey to answer the fundamental questions that will lead to cancer breakthroughs for pets and people.
CanineKids Outfitters Cancer Research
Your gift to the CanineKids Outfitters Cancer Research fund supports cutting-edge cancer research and clinical trials at the Flint Animal Cancer Center.
Improving and extending the quality of life for dogs fighting cancer is the core mission of this fund, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure. The fund was established in memory of Stella, a beloved sheltie who was a long-time bladder cancer survivor. Through her cancer journey, her family learned about the critical research that made her treatment options available to her. Ultimately, these treatments enabled her to live her life fully in spite of her cancer.
Angelo Feline Therapeutics Discovery
Your gift supports research in feline therapeutics and the unique considerations for chemotherapy associated with cats.
The Angelo Feline Therapeutics Discovery was established in memory of Angelo, a beloved cat who had lymphoma, and in honor of Dr. Janet Lori, a CSU-trained veterinary oncologist who provided Angelo’s cancer care. Cats have unique and sometimes unpredictable challenges with cancer chemotherapy due to species-specific metabolic processes. Very little information about the optimum use of anti-cancer compounds is available to guide cancer therapy in cats.
