A team of University of Minnesota researchers led by Jessica Lawrence, DVM, DACVIM, DACVR, DECVDI, and Daniel Vallera, PhD, recently received $500,000 from the V Foundation for Cancer Research to investigate the B7-H3 protein’s role in the immune response in canine and human cancer. Many adult and pediatric tumor types overexpress the B7-H3 protein, including soft tissue and bone sarcomas.

In the United States, approximately 12,000 patients present with glioblastoma, a very aggressive brain or spinal cord cancer, each year. Glioblastoma has no cure and a median survival period of 15-18 months. Gliomas are very difficult to remove entirely with surgery because of their highly invasive growth and require a second line of attack.

As another touchpoint in a lasting relationship between the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe, a team of CVM researchers led by Tiffany Wolf, DVM, PhD, recently received more than $70,000 from project led by Seth Moore, PhD, director of biology and environment at the Grand Portage Band, to continue assisting the tribal nation in investigating moose habitat and population health in a changing climate.
