Lymphoma and the Usefulness of the Canine Model for Human Research

In this edition of Genome Barks Lee Arnold, Vice President of the AKC Canine Health Foundation welcomes Dr. Matthew Breen of the North Carolina State University Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Breen, recent winner of Asa Mays DVM, Excellence in Canine Health Research Award, gives us insight into Lymphoma and other canine cancers and explains the usefulness of the canine model for human research. Dr. Breen played a key role in the mapping of the canine genome and now uses his skills and resources to focus on the molecular cytogenetic evaluation of canine tumors as a means to discover the genes involved in the initiation and progression of cancers. In addition to his activities at NCSU, Dr. Breen was a founding member and now serves on the Board of Directors of the Canine Comparative Oncology and Genomics Consortium, Inc (CCOGC).

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.

Learn more about Dr. Kaeberline’s study.
