Duke University Welcomes Scholars from Ten Nations to The One Health Training Program
 
 
From May 16 through June 7th, more than 35 international scholars from ten countries will receive graduate training in One Health at Duke University.
The Program is hosted by Duke University's Division of Infectious Diseases, Global Health Institute and Nicholas School of the Environment. The program is in its 12th year, led by Duke Professor Gregory C. Gray. The primary goal of the Duke One Health Training Program is to introduce trainees to the importance of One Health and encourage professionals from various countries and disciplines to work together to solve complex public health and infectious disease problems.

Fellowships awarded for One Health projects on food safety, zoonotic disease and Alzheimerís disease

Fellowships awarded for One Health projects on food safety, zoonotic disease and Alzheimer’s disease

Funds allocated to researchers conducting research around the Globe

Researchers working across the wide range of One Health have been awarded fellowship funds to allow them to travel to progress their understanding in their research areas.

Three fellowships, in total worth over £25,000, have been awarded to support research into food safety, the zoonotic disease – trypanosomiasis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

The fellowships are awarded by the Soulsby Foundation –  a charity that supports researchers, particularly those early in their career, working on One Health topics.

Harriet Auty, based at the SRUC in Inverness, UK, is using the funds to investigate how research into animal and human African trypanosomiasis can inform evidence-based policy on controlling the pathogen. Auty, who will be travelling to Tanzania, highlighted the importance of controlling the disease, saying: ‘Animal African trypanosomiasis is a major constraint on agriculture and food security. Human African trypanosomiasis is fatal without treatment and under-reporting and misdiagnosis are common.’

Lorena Sordo, who is currently studying for a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, UK, will use the fellowship to travel to the USA to learn a methodology to allow her to further her studies looking at cats with an Alzheimer’s-like disease. Sordo explains why the cats are a good potential model for human Alzheimer’s disease: ‘In people with Alzheimer’s disease, the accumulation of proteins beta-amyloid and phosphorylated tau is believed to lead to cognitive decline. We have found that cats naturally accumulate these proteins and it is our belief that by quantifying this deposition and extension in the cats’ brains, we will be able to further our understanding on Alzheimer’s disease and its progression.

Lian Thomas, from the University of Liverpool, will be travelling to Nairobi, Kenya, to investigate and quantify the risk to consumers from multiple potential hazards in pork that is supplied through different value chains of varying levels of intensification and organisation. Emphasising the multi-disciplinary nature of the study Thomas said the research would include ’biological sample taking and laboratory diagnostics and the collection and analysis of qualitative socio-economic data.’ She adds that ‘a participatory approach will then be used to design effective and acceptable food safety interventions and understand the impacts of these on the value chain and wider society.’

Chair of the trustees, Judy MacArthur Clark, said: ‘The Soulsby Fellowship offers the opportunity for young veterinary and medical scientists of high potential to deliver really impactful projects in the field of One Health globally.  In just a few years, we have learnt that remarkable projects can be delivered by remarkable people on a relatively small budget.’ She added ‘This year’s fellows are great examples of the talent Lord Soulsby can inspire through the Foundation named after him.’

Notes for editors
This year three fellowships have been awarded by the Soulsby Foundation.

"The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and its U.S. government partners have released the first federal collaborative report listing the top zoonotic diseases — diseases that can spread between animals and people — of national concern for the U.S.

CDC, the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Department of Agriculture developed the report after jointly hosting the One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshop for the U.S.

During the workshop, the agencies agreed on a list of eight zoonotic diseases that are of greatest concern to the nation and made recommendations for next steps using a One Health approach, CDC said. ..."
