Paws for a Cure  2020


Advancing research in pediatric cancer treatments has unique challenges, and progress toward better medicines and a cure has been limited. Intriguingly, BOTH children and our canine companions spontaneously develop a number of cancers with remarkable similarities, including osteosarcoma, certain brain/CNS cancers, lymphoma and leukemia. Speakers, panelists and participants will discuss challenges and progress in accelerating cancer drug development using comparative approaches, including:

  • The state of the art in comparative and novel translational cancer research.

  • Ongoing preclinical, translational and clinical projects leveraging the canine patient model.

  • The most promising prospects for future scientific exploration, collaboration and funding.

  • Life journey presentations by childhood cancer survivors and advocates.

In addition to cutting edge scientific content, the Symposium agenda will include a Young Investigator Scientific Poster Competition/Session, poignant presentations from patient advocates and feature prominent keynote speakers. Ample opportunities to encourage networking and collaboration are also incorporated.
