ONE HEALTH Recognition Advancing...2019 & 2020 - Thursday, December 12, 2019

“...Medical schools are partnering with veterinary schools and zoos on cross-species education and research... The push for more cross-species research While doctors [physicians] and veterinarians have long worked together to heal animals and apply lessons from animal care to people, leaders from both fields have been pushing in recent years to make cross-species observations and research on natural health conditions routine, with the aim of improving health for all.

In an October 2018 article in Nature, 18 authors, most from medical and veterinary schools, advocated for a cross-species approach to disorders affecting the brain and behavior, saying that comparative research on humans and other animals will yield insights and treatments benefiting both. “Many of the same neurological and psychiatric conditions affect humans and animals,” they wrote, “yet clinical and research collaborations between physicians and veterinarians remain infrequent.”

... The idea draws lots of nodding heads, though finding the time and money to implement it in medical education and research remains difficult. ... Bringing medical students and veterinarian students together

Among those collaborations are a few such as the one at Harvard, where medical schools work with veterinary schools and zoos to cross-educate students and practitioners. Students might, for instance, help fix a bat’s broken wing, share knowledge about diabetes treatments in humans to advise on treating a diabetic lemur, and conduct a literature review on possible interventions for cancer in a tiger....

"The biggest benefit you can reap from this One Health approach is inspiration. The value is building a cadre of professionals in medicine who understand the interconnections.”

SOULSBY FOUNDATION CALLS FOR APPLICATIONS FOR 2020 “ONE HEALTH” FELLOWSHIPS - Press Release - November 25, 2019 - Saturday, November 30, 2019

PRESS RELEASE - 25th November, 2019

 

SOULSBY FOUNDATION CALLS FOR APPLICATIONS FOR 2020 “ONE HEALTH” FELLOWSHIPS

The Soulsby Foundation has opened a call for applications for the 2020 Travelling Fellowships Programme.

The Foundation supports talented veterinary and medical researchers at an early stage in their careers through these competitively awarded Travelling Fellowships in “One Health”.  Applicants must be affiliated to a biomedically relevant academic institution in the UK, USA, EU or Australasia.

Further information and application forms for the Fellowships may be found on-line at www.SoulsbyFoundation.org.  The closing date for applications is 31st January, 2020.

The Soulsby Foundation was established in 2016 by Lord Soulsby of Swaffham Prior, a pioneer and champion of the “One Health” concept which recognises the need to take a multidisciplinary approach to solving global and environmental health challenges.

Lord Soulsby treasured a similar travelling award early in his professional life which he considered to be the catalyst that consolidated his future impressive career. He always sought to inspire colleagues and students to view animal and human medicine as one continuous health-related tapestry and, as the only Past President of the RCVS to have also become President of the RSM, he constantly used this unique position to bring the two professions together.

He died in 2017 but his pioneering approach lives on in the work of the Foundation which carries his name. Further information about the Foundation can be found at: www.SoulsbyFoundation.org.
