About Steven Suter

As a clinician/scientist with training in veterinary oncology and molecular biology, I have been focused on canine oncology research for over 17 years. To this end, I have been utilizing a variety of genomics techniques to 1) understand the molecular underpinnings of canine lymphoma, 2) develop novel therapeutics against this heterogenous group of diseases, and 3) understand the development of chemotherapy resistance.

In addition, I’ve also concentrated on the development and characterization of appropriate reagents to study canine lymphoma to help determine the relevance of these diseases when compared to human lymphomas.

On the clinical side, I’ve been convinced, based on a wealth of data in human medical journals, that bone marrow transplantation can cure a population of dogs with B- and T-cell lymphoma. To this end I founded and am the Medical Director of the worlds’ only canine apheresis and bone marrow transplantation unit.
