Have you ever doubted the use of animals in research? Do you know what the term translational research means? Do you ever wonder how animal patients can benefit human patients?

If you answered no to any of these…..or even yes to all, I STRONGLY encourage you to read this article on Dr. Susan LaRue with Colorado State University. It is a frank Q & A with the veterinarian on cancer treatments, research and veterinary care. It is a great and informative read and an excellent example of one of the caring people in biomedical research and how animal and human medicine do not contrast but combine.

As Dr. LaRue so eloquently put it…..”there is only one medicine”
