Course content

A One Health approach to infectious disease research is increasingly important as it is becoming156 clear that the interactions between people, animals and environment are major determinants of pathogen transmission. Greater understanding of these interactions will increase our knowledge of the impact of infectious diseases on the health and well-being of both humans and animals. Within the Institute of Infection & Global Health we are studying the effect of urbanisation, globalisation, climate change, agricultural intensification and encroachment on wildlife habitat on the (re-)emergence of pathogens threatening biodiversity, water and food, and human/animal health.

In IGH we study a wide range of important infectious diseases of people and animals, including zoonotic diseases that transmit between animals and people.Our One Health research spans across this broad remit and includes the following areas:

  • Climate Change and Infectious Diseases of Animals
  • Zoonotic disease epidemiology
  • Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network
