PRESS RELEASE – November 3, 2018


The Soulsby Foundation has opened a call for applications for the 2019 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  The closing date for applications is 31st January, 2019.

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:

European Parliament passes law restricting antibiotics in livestock

“...(41) Antimicrobial resistance to medicinal products for human use and veterinary medicinal products is a growing health problem in the Union and worldwide. Due to the complexity of the problem, its cross-border dimension and the high economic burden, its impact goes beyond its severe consequences for human and animal health and has become a global public health concern that affects the whole of society and requires urgent and coordinated intersectoral action in accordance with the "One Health" approach. Such action includes strengthening of the prudent use of antimicrobials, avoiding their routine prophylactic and metaphylactic use, actions to restrict the use in animals of antimicrobials that are of critical importance for preventing or treating life-threatening infections in humans and encouraging and incentivising the development of new antimicrobials. It also needs to be ensured that appropriate warnings and guidance are included on the labels of veterinary antimicrobials. Use that is not covered by the terms of the marketing authorisation of certain new or critically important antimicrobials for humans should be restricted in the veterinary sector. The rules for advertising veterinary antimicrobials should be tightened, and the authorisation requirements should sufficiently address the risks and benefits of antimicrobial veterinary medicinal products.  ...”

Helping the homeless by helping their pets

Persons experiencing homelessness and their pets both need medical care, yet many homeless persons with pets face barriers to accessing preventive medical services. These companion animals are often providing important psychosocial and/or physical support for their owners, and the strength of their bond with their pet often means owners are more motivated to seek care for their animals than for themselves. We seek to implement an innovative model for a pilot “One Health” clinic where the homeless of Seattle could seek care for both themselves as well as their pets. ...”
