The CCAH provided funding for lead author Dr. Noa Safra's work which identified a gene mutation in dogs that offers clues to understand a neural tube defects in humans.
The CCAH's support for Dr. Peter Dickinson's work characterizing dog glioma, a type of brain tumor that is deadly in dogs and humans, provided background for research showing striking similarities between the human and canine forms of the cancer. This work provided the foundation for the promising treatment studies he is currently conducting that could benefit both our dog patients and humans as well.
