Resident Review Workshop I. The biology of cancer is extremely complex, yet key and conserved molecular characteristics are shared among diverse cancer histologies. These deranged cellular properties have been identified as “Hallmarks of Cancer”, and the fundamental understanding of these recurrent cancer-associated properties are essential for both clinicians and researchers alike, and with greater knowledge of these cellular perturbations promising to improve the future management of cancer in veterinary species. During this seminar presentation, the underpinnings responsible for each of these “Hallmarks” will be explained at a molecular level and key clinical examples in the published veterinary literature will be highlighted to emphasize the current state of understanding for these neoplastic processes in spontaneous tumors in companion animals.


• Become familiar with the fundamental and molecular characteristics that distinguish cancer cells from normal cells

• Gain an understanding for the multiple mechanisms by which cancer cells can perturb normal biologic functions through genetic alteration

Veterinary Cancer Society Dr. Tim Fan

Dr. Fan received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree at Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. He completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship at the University of Illinois from 1995 to 1996. Following the completion of his internship, Dr. Fan fulfilled a Small Animal Internal Medicine Residency at Cornell University in 1998. Following his stay at Cornell, Dr. Fan returned to the University of Illinois to receive advanced clinical training in the subspecialty of Medical Oncology. Dr. Fan completed his Board Certification in Internal Medicine in 2000 and in Medical Oncology in 2001. Following the completion of Dr. Fan’s clinical training, he pursued and completed a PhD in Tumor Immunology, whereby he investigated the anticancer effects of cytokine manipulation strategies for the treatment of locally-invasive and metastatic tumors in mouse models of disease. Upon completion of his PhD in 2007, Dr. Fan now is a Professor in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Medicine and a core faculty member at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology within the Anticancer Discovery from Pets to People theme that focuses research in the field of Immuno-Oncology and Small Molecular Therapeutics through the inclusion of pet dogs and cats with cancer. Dr. Fan’s training as a scientist and veterinarian, has allowed him the opportunity to rapidly investigate and translate novel treatment strategies in companion animals with spontaneously-arising cancers, and conduct meaningful comparative oncology research which is hoped to eventually aid in treating cancer in not only pet animals, but also human beings.
