The Penn Vet Cancer Center is where cutting-edge research meets compassionate care. It’s where human and veterinary medicine converge. It’s where Penn Vet leads the field.


In the Lab

Scientists are conducting the essential basic research that grounds cancer breakthroughs. Collaborators from the School of Veterinary Medicine, School of Medicine, and partnering institutions are working together to share and build knowledge in new and collaborative ways. By breaking boundaries between animal and human medicine—between disciplines and practice—critical links can be made in advancing global cancer research.

In the Clinic

Veterinarians are applying scientific discoveries that lead to patient success stories. With an integrated approach to cancer care, including clinical trials and novel therapies, clinicians are diagnosing and treating pets at the vanguard of veterinary medicine. At the core of their work is expertise and empathy, and at the center of their impact is pets and their owners.

In Conjunction 

The Penn Vet Cancer Center bridges the laboratory and the clinic for a collaborative approach to cancer’s biggest questions. The result is new dialogue and integrated frameworks that move toward one shared goal: the prevention and treatment of cancer in all species.
