Coming five years, a large consortium of several NCOH Partners (coordinator Erasmus MC ), will investigate how the Netherlands can be better prepared for infectious diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. The multidisciplinary character of the collaboration, in which citizen science also plays a role, is unique. Do you want to be part of this exciting One Health consortium? We are now recruiting 26 PhD students for our NWA project – Preparing for vector-borne virus outbreaks in a changing world – a One Health approach.
Deadline for applications: 31 October 2019.
“The NCOH will make it possible for us to realise far faster breakthroughs in the area of emerging infectious diseases and antibiotic resistance,” said Anton Pijpers on BNR news radio.
Together with his Royal Highness the King of the Netherlands, the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport, Edith Schippers, and the State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Sharon Dijksma, visited UMC Utrecht on 6 October 2015. The visit focused on the approach to antibiotic resistance.
