Researchers in cross-species disease transmission awarded One Health fellowships

Soulsby Foundation funds research into human and animal viruses, cross-species disease transmission and treatment for snake bites.

Doctors and veterinarians working across a wide range of One Health issues have been awarded fellowships to enable them to progress their research. The fellowships are awarded by the Soulsby Foundation – a charity that supports early career researchers working on One Health projects.

Four fellowships, in total worth £40,000, have been awarded to support research into the risks of cross-species disease transmission, the impact of climate change on disease vectors, and much needed therapy for a neglected but common tropical disease. This makes a total of nearly £140,000 awarded by the Foundation over the last four years.
