The Oncology Service at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital is pleased to announce the recent addition of Dr. Jenna Burton to the faculty. Dr. Burton earned her veterinary degree from The Ohio State University in 2006, followed by an internship in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery and a residency in Medical Oncology at Colorado State University. She is board certified in Internal Medicine with a subspecialty of Oncology.

“I am excited to join UC Davis and be part of a team providing world-class cancer care for companion animals,” said Dr. Burton. “I look forward to helping the VMTH further develop its clinical trials program in oncology, and strengthen connections, not only between clinics and research, but with the School of Medicine as well.”

Following her residency, Dr. Burton remained at CSU as an Assistant Professor of Oncology where she was responsible for the day-to-day management of, and recruitment of patients to, all clinical trials at the CSU Animal Cancer Center. Her research interests include comparative and translational oncology and development of novel therapeutics through clinical trials. 

“We are thrilled to have Jenna join our oncology faculty,” said Dr. David Wilson, director of the VMTH. “Her extensive experience with the development and implementation of clinical trials will allow us to further expand the oncology services we can offer our clients.”
