About Vidium

We envision a world where pet cancer is no longer defined by fear.
Genome

A new way

By informing veterinarians and pet parents about which mutations are causing their pet’s cancer to grow and spread, we intend to open up the use of precision medicine to combat canine cancer in new and more effective ways.

Vidium is dedicated to unravelling the genetic components of common and complex diseases, including cancer. As a result, the practice of medicine targeting these conditions can be more rational, more precise and more personal. Our focus is on shifting paradigms in cancer treatment to enable cures for cancer and other serious diseases in pets through programs at the intersection of personalized medicine and comparative genomics.

What we believe

We believe that when pets win, everyone wins.
Do good science that does good.
All of us are smarter than any of us.
Our pets deserve access to the best medicine that science can provide.
Be a good human, sometimes you can be a hero.
It is our individual weirdness that makes us a better team.
We challenge the impossible.
Our science is unimpeachable.
