Research Foundation names new executive director

Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation has named Dr. Robert Steiner, a genetics and pediatrics researcher, as its new executive director.

Steiner, a Milwaukee native, comes to MCRF from Doernbecher Children's Hospital and the Institute for Developmental Disabilities at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. At OHSU, he served as Credit Union for Kids professor of pediatric research, and professor of pediatrics and molecular and medical genetics. He also was the vice chairman for pediatric research.

"Dr. Steiner is a great fit for the Research Foundation. He has a passion and expertise for research based on improving patient care, a key component of the Clinic's mission," said Dr. Brian Ewert, Marshfield Clinic president. "We were immediately impressed with his vision for the foundation, his desire to collaborate with others and a leadership style that incorporates the views of others."

Steiner is an active clinician in medical genetics, with interests in inherited metabolic diseases, cholesterol disorders, metabolic bone diseases and newborn screening. His research has focused on rare diseases.

Steiner completed his residency at Children's Hospital Medical Center and University of Cincinnati and a fellowship in medical genetics from the University of Washington.

Physician joins local staff

Dr. John Schrendl has joined the staff of RELIEF! Soft Tissue Therapies, 204 E. Upham St., Suite A.

Initially, he learned to treat traumatic injuries with Chinese massage, called tui na, both with and without herbal compresses to reduce pain, increase motion and speed healing. Schreindl later learned to use structural manipulation therapy, which has some commonalities with chiropractic, and acupuncture for both the treatment of injuries as well as for enhancing athletic performance. He also completed training in the medical qi gong as well.

He graduated summa cum laude from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine with a master of science degree in Oriental medicine. He went on to further his education with both a doctorate of Chinese medicine in China as well as a doctorate of naturopathic medicine in America.

He is board certified in pain management and has completed post-doctoral work in sports medicine. He specializes in Chinese acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, physiotherapy, nutritional counseling, homeopathy, Chinese herbal medicine, Chinese dietary therapy and structural manipulation.
