Claire Cannon's Profile Picture
Dr

Claire Cannon

 

Claire graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2003 and spent several years in general practice in Australia and the United Kingdom before deciding to specialise. During her internship, she worked with specialist veterinary oncologists for the first time.

This opened her eyes to the fact that there are always options for treatment of animals with cancer, ranging from surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy to palliative or comfort care, and she decided that oncology was the career path for her. She moved to the United States in 2009 to undertake a residency in veterinary oncology at the University of Minnesota. She became board certified in 2013 following completion of her training and went on to undertake additional training in research. She was an Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee from 2013-2015 and the University of Minnesota from 2015-2017. She has authored multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and presented her research at several international conferences. She is particularly interested in comparative oncology - what we can learn from animals with cancer that may help people, and vice versa. She has been involved in several clinical trials of potential new cancer treatments for dogs and cats, some of which have lead to advances in cancer treatment in people. Claire is delighted to be home in Australia and at U-Vet Animal Hospital. She is passionate about providing excellent care to all animals with cancer, and their owners, with a focus on maintaining the best quality of life possible for her patients. She is also excited to contribute to the training of our future veterinarians and to continue her research.
