Presentation: Research insights into canine Addison’s disease
Dr. Friedenberg presented research focusing on the genetic and immunologic mechanisms that cause Addison’s disease in dogs and how to apply “big data” methods to dog health care.
About the speaker:
Dr. Steven Friedenberg is an Assistant Professor of Small Animal Emergency & Critical Care Medicine and Genetics at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Friedenberg received his DVM from Cornell University and his PhD from North Carolina State University. He is board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency Critical Care (ACVECC) and currently educates and trains veterinary students, sees patients, and undertakes research at the University of Minnesota.
Dr. Friedenberg’s primary interests include autoimmune disorders such as Addison’s disease and autoimmune hemolytic anemia (IMHA). His research focuses on understanding the genetic and immunologic mechanisms that cause these diseases in dogs. Additionally, he studies other complex genetic traits, in particular various canine cardiac and neurologic disorders. Dr. Friedenberg is interested in applying “big data” methods to veterinary medicine to help improve patient care and outcomes in a wide variety of clinical disorders.
Dr. Friedenberg is also a prolific speaker and author of peer-reviewed literature.
