Kim Selting has made major contributions to both human and veterinary oncology through development, design, and reporting in animal clinical trials and the application of radiation therapy to companion animals. During clinical research, Selting has explored the use of biomarkers in veterinary cancer medicine, making discoveries in the early detection of cancer relapse and chemotherapy-induced toxicity to provide early intervention for patients. Selting has evaluated the use of new anti-cancer chemotherapy drugs, evaluating methods that can be translated to human medicine. She is certified in radiation oncology, contributing to the body of knowledge surrounding radiation therapy of cancer.
