Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
The entire podcast series is available below. You can narrow the list by podcast topic by selecting a research area.
The Genome Barks podcast series welcomes Dr. Deborah Greco, Senior Research Scientist at Nestlé Purina PetCare Company. Dr. Greco has spent her 30 years in practice studying endocrinology, reproduction and nutrition. In this interview, Dr. Greco discusses the art and science of supplementation and pro-biotics, as well as optimum proteins and general nutrition as they pertain to developing and maintaining good haircoat.
The Genome Barks podcast series welcomes Dr. Jaime Modiano, a member of the faculty of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Modiano has spent the last 15 years of his career looking at the mechanisms that are responsible for the origin and progression of canine cancer. Dr. Modiano's current research focuses on better cancer therapies, singling out the canine immune system as a treatment for cancers that are in the process of spreading to various regions of the body.
In this edition of the Genome Barks podcast series we welcome Dr. Simon Gregory, a human cancer researcher at Duke University. Dr. Gregory is working with Dr. Matthew Breen of North Carolina State University on brain tumors. This podcast discusses the similarities between human and canine disease.
In this podcast we welcome Dr. John Tegzes of Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California. Dr. Tegzes is Professor of Toxicology and has specialized in clinical toxicology. In this podcast, we discuss the number one poison to watch for, as well as the dangers of chocolate and plants. Dr. Tegzes also talks about the warning signs that your animal has been poisoned.
In this edition of the Genome Barks podcast series we welcome Dr. Curt Bird of Auburn University in Alabama. Dr. Bird discusses mammary cancer in dogs, including age of onset and potential preventive measures. Dr. Bird also talks about genetic predispositions to mammary cancer.
Dr. Leslie Monroe joins us in this edition of Genome Barks. Dr. Monroe is currently doing a residency in nutrition at the University of California, Davis. She discusses bloat and the research that has been done in recent years.
In this edition of Genome Barks we welcome Dr. Keith Murphy, the Director of Clemson University's Genomics Institute. Dr. Murphy talks about canine hereditary nephropathy in English Cocker Spaniels, known as Alport Syndrome in the human. In the human, the cure for Alport Syndrome is kidney transplant; not a viable option in the dog. Dr. Murphy and his team have determined the genetic cause of hereditary nephropathy in the English Cocker Spaniel, and Dr. Murphy discusses the use of the genetic test by breeders.
In this edition of Genome Barks, we are pleased to present Dr. William Kisseberth of the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Funded by the AKC Canine Health Foundation, Dr. Kisseberth's team is working to determine the genetic components of canine cancer for potential targets for new cancer therapy drug development
In this edition of Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Richard Goldstein, a faculty member at Cornell University with a specialty in genetic and infectious diseases of the kidney. Recorded at the August Breeders' Symposium held in Syracuse, New York, Dr. Goldstein discusses vaccination protocols, including maternal antibodies in the puppy, timing of vaccinations (both in the puppy and in the dam), frequency of vaccine boosters and geriatric care. Dr. Goldstein also explains the difference between "core" and "non-core" vaccines and other various elements of canine vaccinations.
In this edition of Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Marc Kraus, a faculty member at Cornell University with a specialty in veterinary cardiology.? Recorded at the August 2008 Breeders? Symposium held in Syracuse, New York, Dr. Kraus talks about heart murmurs in puppies and the various treatment options that are currently available.? Dr. Kraus also discusses?the best age to begin screening?for heart disease in the dog, and the importance of knowing your pedigrees and the health history of a breeding pair.
In this podcast we bring you an interview with Dr. Tim O’Brien, professor of veterinary anatomic pathology at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. O’Brien was funded by CHF to establish a laboratory-based system for understanding cancer stem cell development.
