First Prize in Thyroid Cancer Research in Dogs

Our research on thyroid cancer in dogs was awarded in September 2021 at the European Congress of Internal Medicine in Small Pets (31st ECVIM-CA Congress 2021). The study 'Organoids of canine medullary thyroid carcinoma and feline thyroid adenomatous hyperplasia' received the first prize from the pharmaceutical company MSD Animal Health. The study is the result of a great collaboration between the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UGent) and Dr. Miguel Campos of the Vetsuisse-Facultät (UBern), and was carried out in Bern (Switzerland).

MSD Animal Health's commercial manager, Gerda Maes, personally presented the award to PhD student, Stephanie Scheemaeker , and her supervisor, Professor Sylvie Daminet.
