The Drive For 2,000 DNA Samples
Thank you for choosing to participate in the Canine Hereditary Cancer Consortium’s (CHCC) drive toward 2,000 samples. We are hopeful these samples will enable the CHCC to take advantage of new genetic resources and technologies to develop genetic screens, diagnostic tests, and treatments for hereditary canine cancers as well as gain insight into the biology of human disease.
Simply complete the form below and you will receive a follow-up e-mail with instructions for your veterinarian on how to collect and submit a sample. We will request either a blood or mouth swab sample a priori.
NOTE ABOUT COST: The CHCC covers the cost of shipping and processing samples, and can reimburse the cost of a blood draw up to $10, though most vets will provide the sample free of charge if they are informed that it is for academic research.
