One Medicine: On the Path to Improved Cancer Diagnosis

The Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research (CCMTR) at North Carolina State University embraces the “One Medicine, One Health” concept–the understanding that the health of people, wild and domestic animals, and the environment is inextricably linked.                                               

CCMTR scientists, a  community of more than 100 investigators from five NC State colleges, are involved in collaborative research with government, private, and academic colleagues to advance knowledge and practical applications that improve the health of animals and humans.

The following item is from Dr. Matthew Breen, professor of genomics at the College of Veterinary Medicine, concerning his CCMTR investigations into the genetic similarities of certain canine and human cancers.
