aboutUSThe Comparative Cancer Biology Program at Cornell University is a new initiative supported by the College of Veterinary Medicine to establish comprehensive interdisciplinary training and facilitate rigorous hypothesis-driven research in comparative cancer biology. The program brings together clinical and basic scientists at the College of Veterinary Medicine and promotes synergistic interactions with other investigators throughout Cornell University. Currently, the program supports the research activities of several graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and veterinary residents through competitive training awards. The program also sponsors a University-wide cancer symposium, College-wide mini-seminar series in cancer biology and an annual retreat.
