On December 12, 2017, Professor of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences Eric Brown (Institute for Infectious Disease Research at McMaster University) will give an inspiring lecture at Utrecht University about the continuous battle against all too smart bacterial pathogens, intriguingly titled: ‘To kill a bacterium, you need to think like a bacterium’.
At the NCOH, we are working hard on conducting effective research into One Health questions by combining expertise. How obvious is that to the outside world? The research and the NCOH are being mentioned more and more often in interviews on the radio or in articles in journals—we are eager to build upon that with all of you!
The NCOH awards a number of travel grants to PhD students of NCOH Partners selected to present their abstract at an international One Health-related academic conference. Through this grant, the NCOH wishes to support the PhD-related research of its members and stimulate the international dimension of its platform.
The MERS coronavirus (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) is a zoonotic virus that can infect humans from its dromedary camel reservoir. The virus can cause a severe lung disease in humans that often ends in death. Berend-Jan Bosch (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University), Bart Haagmans (Erasmus MC) and their colleagues have discovered that the virus uses sugar molecules to enter the host cell. Their findings were recently published in the scientific journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences).
