Canine Osteosarcoma Research

05/31/2012

In this podcast we hear from Dr. Kerstin Lindblad-Toh, a professor in comparative genomics at Uppsala University and the Scientific Director of Vertebrate Genome Biology at the Broad Institute.

Dr. Lindblad-Toh discusses current research on osteosarcoma, including how identification of the unique genes and associated biological pathways that define osteosarcoma can make a difference in how this disease is diagnosed and treated, not just in dogs, but in humans too.

Please note: This podcast does not have the high quality sound you are accustomed to from AKC Canine Health Foundation podcasts. Dr. Lindblad-Toh was kind enough to record this podcast via an international telephone connection. We apologize for the inconvenience, but because the information in this podcast is very valuable to dog owners, we hope you will find it worthwhile to listen.
