Penn Vet to Host Symposium on Microbes in Health and Disease -Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Philadelphia, PA (USA) - Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Penn Vet to Host Symposium on Microbes in Health and Disease 

Featuring Acclaimed Science Writer Carl Zimmer - Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 6-7:30pm

Inn at Penn - 3600 Sansom St., Philadelphia, PA (USA)

John Donges, Communications Coordinator, 215-898-4234/jdonges@vet.upenn.edu

For Immediate Release

 [September 12, 2014; Philadelphia, PA] – From a major Ebola outbreak in West Africa to MERS in Saudi Arabia to polio in Syria to chikungunya in the Caribbean, the news these days is full of stories about viruses. The Microbial Communities in Health and Disease symposium, sponsored by Penn Vet, in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and School of Arts & Sciences, will explore how bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other organisms interact with their animal and human hosts in ways that either maintain health or lead to disease.

 The timely, two-day symposium will begin with a special public event – a discussion with acclaimed science writer Carl Zimmer on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 6-7:30pm at the Inn at Penn (3600 Sansom St., Philadelphia). Presentations for the scientific community will take place at Penn Vet’s Hill Pavilion (380 S. University Ave., Philadelphia) on Thursday, October 16, 2014. Admission is FREE, but registration is required at www.vet.upenn.edu/carlzimmer (for the 10/15 event) and http://www.vet.upenn.edu/chmisymposium (for the 10/16 presentations).

 Author and New York Times columnist Carl Zimmer will discuss “A Planet of Viruses: How Humans Can Live Safely on a Viral World.” One of the most frightening things about viruses is how they emerge without warning, vanish mysteriously, and then return again even more dangerous than before. Zimmer will discuss how scientists are uncovering the hidden rules by which new viruses evolve and spread. To do so, they’re exploring the networks of connections that join human societies together and also link our species to other animals with which we share the planet—and with which we can share diseases.

 On October 16, eight prominent scientists will discuss cutting-edge work investigating how microbes not only cause disease, but also how “good bugs” promote health. Speakers include:

  • Janelle Ayres, PhD, Nomis Foundation Laboratories, Salk Institute for Biological Studies
  • Yasmine Belkaid, PhD, Chief, Mucosal Immunology Section, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • Claire Fraser, PhD, Director, Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine
  • Jack Gilbert, PhD, Department of Ecology & Evolution, University of Chicago
  • Sergio Lira, MD, PhD, Director, Immunology Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
  • Martin F. Polz, PhD, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • John Rawls, PhD, Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, Duke University Medical Center
  • Ramnik Xavier, MD, PhD, Director, Center for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Massachusetts General Hospital 

This event is made possible in part by the Provost Interdisciplinary Seminar Fund Award and exemplifies the One Health Initiative, which is dedicated to improving the lives of all species through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental science.

 The symposium is spearheaded by Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions. The Center funded five pilot projects last year to explore the intersection of microbes and disease in order to benefit both animal and human health. The second round of funded projects will be announced next month. For more information, visit www.vet.upenn.edu/chmi.

Zoobiquity 4: Human and Animal Health in a Changing Environment MJ1511 - Saturday, November 01, 2014 Seattle, WA (USA) - Sunday, January 20, 2013

Zoobiquity 4: Human and Animal Health in a Changing Environment MJ1511    

Saturday, November 01, 2014 Seattle, WA

The Zoobiquity 2014 conference focuses on how rapidly changing local and global environments affect the health of humans and animals. Through case presentations and interactive discussions, human and veterinary medicine experts as well as environmental health scientists will explore the clinical overlaps between human  and animal response to environmental factors, including climate, the built environment, air pollution, and domestic violence. By fostering this cutting-edge “One Health” dialogue, the conference will demonstrate how a species-spanning approach to medicine can improve human, animal, and environmental health.

11th One Medicine [One Health] Symposium - December 10-11, 2014 - Friday, January 04, 2013

11th One Medicine [One Health] Symposium - December 10-11, 2014
Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center | Durham, North Carolina


A conference for physicians, nurses, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, public health professionals, environmental health specialists, agriculture professionals, wildlife professionals, and federal, military, state and local emergency management and disaster responders.

The One Medicine Symposium is hosted by the NC Department of Agriculture and NC Department of Health and Human Services in cooperation with NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, USDA APHIS Veterinary Services, and NCSU Office of Professional Development. This national conference provides professionals from a variety of backgrounds with current information and take-home tools to improve awareness and understanding of the topics from a One Medicine perspective, promote collaboration across professional disciplines, and enhance preparedness for natural or man-made disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, and other challenges affecting human and animal health.

Program Description: The 2014 One Medicine Symposium will feature a broad range of topics related to disasters and emerging and zoonotic diseases. These are the types of challenges that require professionals in many disciplines to partner together and work outside of their routine, everyday duties and their comfort zones. Participants will gain valuable knowledge from real-world event and case discussions on disaster preparedness, response, and recovery as well as emerging zoonotic diseases and outbreaks. This year’s program will feature both traditional lectures and interactive audience discussion guided by experienced facilitators to encourage participants to consider how they might approach these challenges in their own professions and communities.

Conference Objectives:

  • Describe the One Medicine/One Health concept and how to apply it to challenges affecting human and animal health.
  • Describe the One Medicine approach to disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.
  • Describe the current status of, and One Medicine approach for, researching, monitoring, and managing select emerging diseases.
