"NextGen: Companion Animal Models of Human Disease for Precision Health"

Description and Speaker Bio

Jeffrey Bryan, PhD, presentingBryan Headshot

Dr. Bryan will discuss the opportunities that comparative oncology and naturally occurring models of cancer offer for clinical translation. Genetically outbred patients sharing the human environment with a cancer-conditioned immune system represent a uniquely complex translational path and opportunities to dissect mechanisms of treatment success or failure.
