The annual award for best thesis in Public Health, awarded by the Dutch Congress for Public Health, was awarded to our own Young NCOH alumna: Dr. Myrna de Rooij.
The focus of Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) is on (re-)emerging infectious diseases, epidemics, and antimicrobial resistance, including veterinary and environmental challenges. Its objective is to find sustainable solutions for global One Health challenges. How NCOH and its researchers accomplish this, you can read in our new brochure.
Prof. Annemarie Rebel leads the Animal Health and Welfare Department within Wageningen University & Research. She is also Scientific Director Smart and healthy farming at NCOH. During a digital coffee she talked about her work and her interests.
Understanding how bacteria adapt in order to survive is fundamentally interesting and can potentially help us to understand bacterial infections, says Eveline Ultee who researched how bacteria change their shape.
NCOH bundles One Health top research
The Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) aims for an integrated One Health approach to tackle the global risk of infectious diseases. NCOH commits to create durable solutions for this major challenge by bundling world-leading academic top research in the Netherlands in the area of One Health.
Young NCOH is the network for PhD students and post-docs from the NCOH research groups. Aim of the network is sharing knowledge and expertise in One Health related disciplines, which can lead to new collaborations in research.
Complementary research themes
The 4 NCOH strategic research themes are complementary and interactive. They focus on studying the interactions and connections between human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental health in pursuit of durable solutions to grand societal challenges requiring a One Health approach.
NCOH is partner in the Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP).
