Welcome to another podcast brought to you by the AKC Canine Health Foundation. In this podcast we are speaking with Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, Associate Professor of Pathology at the University of Washington. Dr. Kaeberlein discusses his groundbreaking work in aging and his interest in using pet dogs to evaluate a novel anti-aging compound. Dr. Kaeberlein completed his BS at Western Washington University in Seattle, followed by his PhD at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge Massachusetts. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington that led to a faculty position within the Department of Pathology.
