Naturally occurring cancers in companion animals such as dogs share clinical and biological similarities to human cancers that are difficult to replicate in other model  systems. The purpose of Comparative Oncology is to make use of these cancers as models to bridge the gap between conventional preclinical models and human trials, facilitating clinical translation of new cancer drugs, devices, and imaging procedures. The Centre for Advanced Imaging is establishing the first research program in Australia harnessing the power of Comparative Oncology.
