Funds allocated to researchers conducting research around the Globe
Researchers working across the wide range of One Health have been awarded fellowship funds to allow them to travel to progress their understanding in their research areas.
Three fellowships, in total worth over £25,000, have been awarded to support research into food safety, the zoonotic disease – trypanosomiasis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
The fellowships are awarded by the Soulsby Foundation – a charity that supports researchers, particularly those early in their career, working on One Health topics.
