The University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College has launched the Bench to Bedside Institute for Translational Health Research and Innovation. The institute brings together science, veterinary health, and human health research to pursue the development of treatments for both animals and humans. In particular, the researchers will study topics such as cancer therapies for both people and pets, neurology, and cardiology. “Our vision for this institute is that it will be a global hub for translational health research that catalyzes cutting-edge research and recognizes and rewards research excellence,” said OVC associate dean of research and graduate studies Dr Shayan Sharif.
