Brave Scientists: Ed Breitschwerdt
Oct. 12, 2021
Dr. Ed Breitschwerdt, DVM, DACVIM, talks about how and why he began studying intracellular pathogens, particularly Bartonella, and their relationship to chronic human neuropsychiatric diseases. We also discuss the variable host immune response to infectious diseases, citing COVID19 as a recent example of such variability from person to person. Dr. Breitschwerdt is a professor of medicine and infectious diseases at NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine, adjunct professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center, and director of the Intracellular Pathogens Research Lab in the Institute for Comparative Medicine at NC State University. He is also the co-founder of Galaxy Diagnostics, helping to create more accurate tests for Bartonella, Borrelia (Lyme-Disease-causing bacteria), and other stealth pathogens that are known to cause human and animal disease.
