Zoobiquity Conference 2013 in New York City -- Saturday, Nov. 2
Date:9/9/2013

Nearly 30 of the nation's leading experts in medicine - both physicians and veterinarians - are joining forces on Saturday, November 2 at the third Annual Zoobiquity Conference in a bid to help improve the health of both human and animal patients. The event, to be held at Rockefeller University (morning session) and the Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo (afternoon session) will feature fascinating case studies in people and across various other animal species.

Dr. Harvey Fineberg, President of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and a conference keynote speaker, comments, "Human health is inextricably linked to the health and well-being of animals and the ecosystem we all share. This conference promises to open new opportunities for physicians and veterinarians to collaborate in ways that will simultaneously advance human health and animal well-being."

Some of the fascinating cases to be presented include: breast cancer in Siberian tigers and post-menopausal women; cognitive dysfunction in older dogs and Alzheimer's disease in the elderly; epilepsy in gorillas and humans; and malaria in penguins and people.

Leaders in human medicine including Dr. Larry Norton from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's Breast Cancer Programs, Dr. Orrin Devinsky from NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, and Dr. Elaine Ostrander from the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will be joined by such veterinary leaders as Dr. Paul Calle from the Wildlife Conservation Society and Dr. Richard Goldstein of The Animal Medical Center in NYC for this one-day event hosted by The Animal Medical Center-NY, the Wildlife Conservation Society and David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, a practicing cardiologist at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and co-author of Zoobiquity, upon which the conference is based, wanted to create a platform for the country's leading physicians and veterinarians to come together to collaboratively identify solutions to health challenges impacting both humans and animals. Dr. Elaine Ostrander of the NIH whose comparative genomic work stands to benefit both human and non-human animal patients states, "This is an exciting opportunity to bring people from different disciplines to better understand the role of important comparative areas such as genetics in deciphering disease processes."
