Using a One Health approach to control food and water borne pathogens
Despite major gains in public health, food and water borne pathogens are still major contributors to the global burden of disease.
Such diseases are highly preventable, particularly if the sources of infection are known. Many food and water borne pathogens are carried by animals, so techniques that identify transmission pathways help guide public health decision-making.
Distinguished Professor Nigel French will show how a One Health approach can help determine the sources of infections and help to reduce the burden of disease.
This memorial lecture commemorates the work of Ian Beveridge, whose pioneering in the area of 'one medicine' foresaw an entirely new kind of interdisciplinary research.
