One Health: Integrating the Veterinarian Scientist into the Biomedical Research Enterprise - Bethesda, MD (USA) April 7-8, 2015 - Thursday, March 05, 2015

One Health: Integrating the Veterinarian Scientist into the Biomedical Research Enterprise

                   National Institutes of Health (NIH)

                   Bethesda, Maryland (USA)

                   April 7-8, 2015

One Health is an integrative effort of multiple disciplines working together to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. This Conference will bring together veterinarians, clinicians, and basic researchers with the aim of providing information and advice on how basic and applied biomedical research—utilizing the concept of One Health—can advance the National Institutes of Health (NIH) human health and disease mission. Participants will discuss case studies in which multidisciplinary teams combine investigations using both animal and human subjects to study various conditions, including infectious disease, cancer, and neurological disease. Training programs that bring together investigators from diverse disciplines, including veterinary science, also play a critical role in advancing the One Health concept. Participants will discuss examples of training programs that use the One Health strategy and will identify best practices for training veterinarian scientists to be part of interdisciplinary biomedical research teams. Based on these various case studies and roundtable discussions, participants and attendees will provide input on how the NIH might further its mission by incorporating the One Health concept into research and training programs. The Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), within the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives in the Office of the NIH Director, is pleased to sponsor this conference. ORIP funds animal-based resources and research projects and plays a central role at the NIH in training veterinarian scientists (see http://dpcpsi.nih.gov/orip/index). Therefore, ORIP seeks advice regarding future directions for its programs, including alignment with recommendations from the 2014 NIH Physician-Scientist Workforce Working Group Report (http://report.nih.gov/workforce/psw/index.aspx) and initiatives being planned by veterinary schools to partner with NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Science Centers and other resources.

What is One Health?

With rapid transportation of people, animals, and food, now the norm in many world economies, we are facing new complex zoonotic diseases and food safety problems on a scale never seen before. To respond to and control these problems, we will need new approaches. One Health, an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses animal, human, and environmental health, has been embraced as a way forward by many groups of professional experts. It is a worldwide strategy for advancing health care in humans, animals and the environment through communication and collaboration between multiple disciplines with the realization that human, animal, and environmental health are all connected.

The Duke One Health team serves as a base for the rapidly expanding Duke research portfolio in One Health, as well as a hub for encouraging ongoing campus-wide research activities in this field. Duke has an expansive academic and clinical network both domestically and abroad. This team provides a strong, interdisciplinary base for ongoing One Health activities across this network.
