Meet Petey, a pit bull mix whose life has been extended thanks to a partnership between Emory University Hospital Midtown neurosurgeon Costas Hadjipanayis and the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine. Together Emory and UGA are testing a cancer fighting agent on terminally ill dogs with naturally occuring brain tumors. The goal of the research is to help translate new brain cancer therapies to humans by assessing results in dogs with similar diseases.
