The LASt Word: An AALAS Podcast

Feb 1, 2024

In Episode 4 of the LASt Word (an AALAS podcast) we were joined by Dr. Matthew Breed. Dr. Breed has recently started a new position at Clemson University and is currently the attending veterinarian and director of the Office of Animal Resources and Godley-Snell Research Center. At the time of this interview, he was the Senior Animal Program Veterinarian at Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research.

Dr. Breed is a diplomate of the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine, an accredited veterinarian by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Laboratory Animal Science, the American Society of Laboratory Animal Practitioners and the Association of Primate Veterinarians. He earned his Ph.D. from the Tulane University School of Medicine, his veterinary degree from the University of Queensland in Australia and his bachelor’s degree from the University Adelaide, also in Australia.  

In this podcast we discuss Dr. Breed’s recent article in Comparative Medicine “Bacterial Genotype, Carrier Risk Factors, and an Antimicrobial Stewardship Approach Relevant To Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Prevalence in a Population of Macaques Housed in a Research Facility.” Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) remains a significant problem for human and animal health and can negatively affect the health status of macaques and other nonhuman primates (NHP) in research colonies. Please join us as we discuss implementing strategic antimicrobial stewardship practices.
