Daniel Promislow Publishes Findings on Dog Breed Morbidity

Daniel Promislow, CSDE Affiliate and UW professor in the departments of Pathology and Biology, recently published findings on age-related disease in canines. The study aims to understand how aging contributes to multiple diseases and morbidities across dog breeds. While afflictions mounted with age across the sample group, Promislow and his associates found breeds’ age-related patterns of morbidity differ surprisingly little.

Dogs are increasingly viewed as useful models for studying human aging, so work of this nature could lead to further insight into our own health trajectories.
