1475 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ
7:30am-5pm: General Sessions   |   5pm-6:30pm Reception

Overview:  The excessive translational failure rates of pre-clinical laboratory animal model studies calls for alternative approaches which can better inform on the development of biomedical innovations.  Compared to laboratory animals, companion dogs are a phenotypically diverse population which naturally develop neoplastic, cardiovascular, infectious, metabolic, neurological, orthopedic, and autoimmune diseases with similarity to humans.  This symposium focuses on the increasingly important role of dogs and veterinary clinical studies in the development of drugs, biologics, diagnosticsand devices with parallel applications for human and veterinary medicine.
