Comparative Animal Core and Vet Med Clinical Trials (Veterinary Clinical Research Support SR)

Summary:

The Comparative Animal Core (CAC) provides an integrated platform for preclinical and translational research and training for studies involving animals with natural disease. The CAC is made up of two major components: the Animal Tissue Biorepository and the Clinical Trials Office.

This core also functions as the OSUCCC's Veterinary Clinical Research Support Shared Resource (VCRS SR), which designs and conducts clinical trials in companion animals with spontaneous diseases to evaluate novel diagnostics and therapeutics and collects biospecimens, such as tissue biopsies, serum, plasma and urine, in support of comparative cancer research. The overriding goal of this resource is to advance the diagnosis and treatment of disease in veterinary patients while enhancing the health of humans through comparative and translational studies.
