About Frederick Strathmann, Ph.D.

Dr. Strathmann is a medical director of Toxicology at ARUP, co-director of the automated core laboratory at ARUP and an assistant professor of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine.

He received his MS and PhD in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine from the University of Rochester where he studied early glial cell development of the central nervous, after which he focused on glial cell biology in development and repair paradigms as a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Biomedical Genetics at the University of Rochester. He completed a clinical chemistry fellowship at the University of Washington in Seattle where he studied small molecule analysis by Mass Spectrometry and quantitative multiplexed immunoassays in solid tissue diagnosis.

Dr. Strathmann was the recipient of the 2009 AACC Upstate New York Max E. Chilcote Young Investigator Award and a travel award recipient to the 2010 MSACL conference. He was awarded the Strandjord-Clayson Award for Meritorious Research from the Department of Laboratory Medicine at the University of Washington in 2010, and was awarded the Paul E. Strandjord Young Investigator Award from the Academy of Clinical Physicians and Scientists in 2010 and 2011. He is board certified in clinical chemistry and toxicological chemistry by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry.
