About Kristianna M Fredenburg

Kristianna Fredenburg, M.D., Ph.D., joined the University of Florida Department of Pathology, Immunology, and Laboratory Medicine in July 2015. She is a board-certified anatomic and clinical pathologist whose primary interests include head/neck and cardiothoracic pathology. She also has a strong research interest in identifying the underlying pathogenesis of head and neck cancers among different racial and ethnic groups in the United States.  

Dr. Fredenburg earned her undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York. She followed this degree with a doctorate in cell biology from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. After a brief postdoctoral fellowship at the Duke University Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology (Durham, North Carolina), Dr. Fredenburg went on to obtain her medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She later completed her pathology residency training and a two-year surgical pathology fellowship here, at the University of Florida.
