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.

Blue, Our Amazing Aussie

No words can describe the horror my wife and I felt when our beautiful, healthy, athletic Australian Shepherd, Blue (a once-in-a-lifetime dog) collapsed just before Labor Day 2016. He nearly died three times that afternoon and evening, and it was only through the amazing skill of multiple vets and techs at our family vet and the emergency hospital that he lived to see another day.
