No Bones About It: How Dogs Can Help Advance Cancer Research
Lecture: Greenwich Library Meeting Room,101 West Putnam Avenue, May 19, 2016
Dr. Robert S. Weiss, Professor of Molecular Medicine at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, is set to speak at 7:00 pm on May 19th at the Greenwich Library. Approximatly 6 million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year, and more than half of dogs over age 10 will develop cancers such as osteosarcoma, lymphoma or melanoma. The genetic makeup of dogs and humans is very similar and therefore, much work is being done in the cancer research arena that is proving beneficial to both canines and humans. If you missed the lecture or just want to review the highlights, Dr. Weiss has shared his slide presentation with us.
Founder, Bill Gorgas, spoke with Noah Roth on "Hear and Now" (1490 AM Greenwich) on March 31. Thank you Noah for giving Bill the opportunity to raise awareness about current research and upcoming events sponsored by ClancysCure. Listen to the interview.
