In the newest Season 4 episode of Unfold, a UC Davis podcast, you’ll learn about a program at UC Davis that aims to find the next therapy for cancer — for both humans and animals.
Dogs 10 years and older have a 50% chance of dying from cancer. They also develop the same types of cancers that humans do because their immune system is closely related to ours. Now human oncologists are studying cancer in canines in the hopes of benefiting both animals and humans. In this episode of Unfold, you’ll learn how UC Davis veterinarians and physicians are collaborating to help human cancer patients and their furry best friends.
In this episode:
- Robert Canter, surgical oncologist with UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center
- Michael Kent, radiation oncologist and director of the UC Davis Center for Companion Animal Health, School of Veterinary Medicine
- Danae Unti, owner of Boone, a dog who completed a cancer clinical trial
The award-wining podcast will launch episodes every week through Nov. 15.
Unfold is available free, on demand on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, Google Podcasts, on your smart speaker or wherever you get your podcasts. Original music for Unfold comes from UC Davis alumnus Damien Verrett and Curtis Jerome Haynes. Follow on Twitter at @Unfoldpodcast.
