The Sprecher Institute for Comparative Cancer Research incorporates many of the programs of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.
The impact of cancer on humans and pets is enormous. The intersections between cancer in humans and companion animals are remarkable. Pets share our environment and develop similar forms of cancer. The clinical behavior and treatment of cancer in pets and humans are also quite close.
The Sprecher Institute for Comparative Cancer Research seeks to control cancer in all species. To accomplish this goal we identify and develop new discoveries for clinical application, provide treatment for animals with cancer, and produce educational materials about cancer and our environment for professional and non-professional audiences.
