We are excited to announce a new partnership with the Ovarian Cancer Symptom Awareness Organization (OCSA), the proud sponsor of Ohlin and his work in our ovarian cancer detection study.
OCSA works to expand public awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer in an effort to contribute to the early detection of this deadly disease, and by doing so, save lives.
Learn more about OCSA and Ohlin at www.ovariancancersymptomawareness.org.
Ohlin and a few of his classmates are part of the Ovarian Cancer Detection Study being conducted at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center.
The Working Dog Center has partnered with a group of top scientists dedicated to advancing early ovarian cancer diagnosis through a combination of detection dogs, advanced chemical analysis and nanotechnology.
The grant, awarded by the Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation, will be a collaborative effort between:
- George Preti, PhD (Primary Investigator) – Monell Chemical Senses Center
- Cindy Otto, DVM, PhD – Penn Vet Working Dog Center
- Janos Tanyi, MD, PhD – Penn Ovarian Cancer Research Center, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania
- A.T. Charlie Johnson, PhD – Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Pennsylvania
- Jody Piltz-Seymour, MD – Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania
