Welcome to AURIC
The Gold Standard in Cancer Research
Cancer is a major health concern for Alabamians. In Alabama alone, more than 23,000 new cases of cancer were diagnosed and more than 10,000 people died of the disease in 2010 (Alabama Dept. of Public Health).
AURIC is human medicine, animal medicine, research and diagnostics where faculty, students, and staff are working together to solve the complex puzzle of cancer. AURIC is based within the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, but AURIC is everywhere, from the laboratory to the clinic.
