Dogs Trained to Sniff Out CancerPublished December 5, 2008

A colleague pointed me to this video, a fascinating look at how researchers are training dogs to smell cancer in the breath samples of human patients. And by studying cancers in dogs, we may discover new treatments for cancer in human and canine cancer patients. You’ll hear from Dr. Katherine Skoropski, Assistant Professor of Oncology at US Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Joseph Tuscano, Associate Professor at the UC Davis Cancer Center.
