Research into zoonotic diseases funded by One Health fellowships

Soulsby Foundation funds research into nutrition, zoonotic and emerging disease and antimicrobial resistance.

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.

Five fellowships, in total worth £50,000, have been awarded to support research into the risks of cross-species disease transmission, including identifying emerging disease, disease surveillance, malnutrition and antimicrobial resistance in the poultry food chain. This makes a total of nearly £200,000 awarded by the Foundation over the past five years.
