About the Event

Register now to hear more about the first Australia-wide database of canine and feline cancers!

This event will provide you with the first-hand insight into ACARCinom, built upon a multi-institutional partnership between UQ, The University of Sydney, The University of Adelaide, Murdoch University, Gribbles and Idexx.

ACARCinom received co-investment from the ARDC.

Using ACARCinom, dog and cat owners and veterinarians can make more informed decisions about cancer diagnosis, treatment and care options.
