Research: Improving Animal & Human Health


Dr. Nicola Mason with Denali, a dog enrolled in Dr. Mason's osteosarcoma study.Penn Vet is a wonderfully vibrant and collaborative place, where scientists perform basic, translational, and clinical research in the hopes of preventing and eradicating disease in animals and humans.

Our faculty are leaders in cancer, neuroscience, infectious disease, stem cell research, and more, working with collaborators at Penn’s Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Engineering, as well as national and international institutions.

New discoveries in these and other areas have the potential to improve both animal and human medicine, from new ways to diagnose disease to novel treatment options, and are often made possible with support from people like you.

Giving opportunities offer the flexibility to support an area of research that is most meaningful to you.
