Prof. Geoffrey Wood is Assistant Co-Director of the Institute for Comparative Cancer Investigation (ICCI), and Co-Leader of the Dog Osteosarcoma Group: Biomarkers Of Neoplasia (DOGBONe). Wood's overall research goal is to improve cancer diagnostics and treatment in veterinary species as well as humans by employing a One Health approach. He is particularly interested in using plasma microRNAs a biomarkers of cancer, and has established tissue microarrays of various cancer types to look for novel prognostic proteins and/or therapeutic targets. With his collaborators, he uses cross-species cancer genetics to look for mutations that are common or disparate across multiple species including humans.
