Research Connection: The Intersection of Basic Science and Clinical Research with Dr. Joshua Stern

The NC State College of Veterinary Medicine recently welcomed back Dr. Joshua Stern as the associate dean and director of Research and Graduate Studies. Dr. Stern spent several years at the College of Veterinary Medicine completing a cardiology residency in 2012, and he is now principal investigator of the Stern Translational Cardiac Genetics and Pharmacogenomics Laboratory. Dr. Stern’s lab focuses on veterinary cardiology, specifically inherited heart disease, and how to use genetic data to guide treatment and prognosis, as well as the development of large animal models of human heart disease such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We sat down with Dr. Stern to talk about his lab’s research, the importance of applying basic science research to complex clinical problems and his vision for the advancement of research at NC State College of Veterinary Medicine.
