Science Cafe Description:

Doberman Pinchers with a certain genetic mutation are prone to develop a deadly disease of the heart muscle, known as dilated cardiomyopathy, or DCM. A unique study at the University of Florida has brought together scientists from the veterinary and human medical worlds to investigate not only the cause of the disease, the role of genetics and the potential for gene therapy in this particular dog breed, but also how this knowledge may contribute to better management of heart disease in people.
