About TC3R


The mission of the TC3R is to advance the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human and animal cancers by generating new knowledge of cancer susceptibility, development, and response to treatment inTC3R Mission animals and humans through comparative cancer biology approaches.


Our vision is that the TC3R will provide a collaborative and supportive environment for multidisciplinary and interdepartmental research that will yield novel insights into molecular mechanisms of oncogenesis in different animal species to support comparative oncology clinical trials and ultimately advance therapeutic options for human and animal cancer patients.
