Presentation of The Australian Companion Animal Registry of Cancers (ACARCinom)
With support from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) through the Australian Data Partnership program, ACARCinom is the first Australia-wide registry of animal cancer occurrences that addresses the gaps in veterinary cancer data registries. ACARCinom aims to make a positive impact on cancer research for our pets. Having reliable data is crucial for understanding the patterns of cancer and for evaluating treatments in both animals and humans.
Five university veterinary schools and Australia's 2 leading veterinary pathology providers are partnering in the ACARCinom project: The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, University of Sydney, Gribbles Veterinary Pathology, IDEXX, University of Adelaide, Murdoch University
By uniting the expertise and resources of these institutions, ACARCinom is poised to make significant advancements in understanding and combating cancer in dogs and cats. This project represents a remarkable collaboration that harnesses the power of data to unlock new insights and drive progress in the field of veterinary oncology.
