Penn Vet | VCIC

The Veterinary Clinical Investigations Center (VCIC) is located within the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The center’s primary focus is the establishment of clinical trials directed at investigating novel treatments or diagnostic tools in a variety of spontaneous disease processes in client-owned pets.

Of special interest to Newfoundland owners and owners of other large breed dogs, The Center manages clinical trials to develop new approaches and treatments for diseases such as arthritis and cancer.
