PRESS RELEASE – November 3, 2018 SOULSBY FOUNDATION CALLS FOR APPLICATIONS FOR 2019 ONE HEALTH FELLOWSHIPS 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.
