Ed Breitschwerdt, CVM
Dr. Breitschwerdt will provide an overview of the comparative medical importance of the genus Bartonella. These emerging, vector borne pathogens appear to cause a spectrum of cardiovascular, neurological, and rheumatological diseases in animals and humans. Concepts related to disease transmission and diagnostic confirmation of infection will be emphasized with case studies.
Dr. Edward B. Breitschwerdt is the Melanie S. Steele professor of medicine and infectious diseases at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He is also an adjunct professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center, and a Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM). Dr. Breitschwerdt directs the Intracellular Pathogens Research Laboratory in the Comparative Medicine Institute at North Carolina State University. He also co-directs the Vector Borne Diseases Diagnostic Laboratory and is the director of the NCSU-CVM Biosafety Level 3 Laboratory.
A graduate of the University of Georgia, Breitschwerdt completed an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Missouri between 1974 and 1977. He has served as president of the Specialty of Internal Medicine and as chairperson of the ACVIM Board of Regents. He is a former associate editor for the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine and was a founding member of the ACVIM Foundation.
Breitschwerdt’s clinical interests include infectious diseases, immunology, and nephrology. For over 30 years, his research has emphasized vector-transmitted, intracellular pathogens. Most recently, his research group has contributed to cutting-edge research in the areas of animal and human bartonellosis. In addition to authoring numerous book chapters and proceedings, Dr. Breitschwerdt’s research group has published more than 450 manuscripts in peer-reviewed scientific journals. In 2012, he received the North Carolina State University Alumni Association Outstanding Research Award and in 2013, he received the Holladay Medal, the highest award bestowed on a faculty member at North Carolina State University. In 2017, Dr. Breitschwerdt received the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges Outstanding Research Award and the American Canine Health Foundation Excellence in Research Award. In 2018, he was named the Melanie S. Steele Distinguished Professor of Medicine at North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine.
Charlotte Mao, MD
Dr. Mao will provide an overview of common vectorborne infections, focusing on Bartonella and Borrelia (Lyme disease) infections, and evidence in the existing scientific literature supporting possible mechanisms by which mycotoxicosis might negatively impact these infections. These concepts will be illustrated through a discussion of some patient cases with prominent neuropsychiatric manfestations, highlighting the intersection of mold/mycotoxin exposure with vectorborne infections, inc bartonellosis and Lyme borreliosis.
Charlotte Mao MD MPH is a pediatric infectious disease (ID) physician with expertise in Lyme disease, vector-borne coinfections and HIV/AIDS. She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and did pediatric residency and ID fellowship training at Boston Children’s Hospital. Her work over 25 years at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) Division of Infectious Diseases focused primarily on pediatric HIV clinical care and clinical research. She served as site co-investigator for numerous NIH-/NIAID- and NICHD-funded multicenter pediatric HIV clinical trials and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. She turned her focus to Lyme disease and vector-borne coinfections on gaining extensive clinical experience with pediatric Lyme disease patients in BCH’s referral ID clinic. Joining the Pediatric Infectious Disease unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, she provided consultative pediatric ID specialty care in a multidisciplinary clinic for children with complex Lyme/vectorborne disease at the Dean Center for Tickborne Illness at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. She is currently Curriculum Director for Invisible International and a scientific consultant for Bay Area Lyme Foundation.
