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. The kick off of the network takes place at the Annual Scientific Meeting, 17 May 2019 (ASM2019).
Young NCOH Board
The appointment of the Young NCOH Board is the next step in the development of the Young NCOH network. The NCOH Board of Directors has appointed the Young NCOH Board with members from various NCOH partners:

On Thursday, 28 February 2019, the ‘One Health’ debate will take place in The Hague. This debate is the conclusion of the Castellum research programme: a public-private partnership aimed at developing vaccines against zoonoses.
Contamination with resistant bacteria in patients admitted to Dutch hospitals does not result in higher mortality than contamination by non-resistant bacteria. Although the problem of antibiotic resistance in the Netherlands currently seems manageable, it is important to remain vigilant in view of the ever-changing epidemiology of resistant bacteria, according to Wouter Rottier, who was awarded...
Radboudumc has combined its research into controlled human infection models to create a new program: the Radboudumc Controlled Human Infection Models (RCHIM). By studying the interaction between pathogens and humans under controlled conditions, researchers can improve their understanding of the underlying disease mechanisms. This understanding contributes to a more targeted development of medicines and vaccines...
In January 2016, NCOH’s own bilingual Twitter account, @ncohnl, was registered. With investigators in the field of one health as a primary target group, via this Twitter account relevant developments in the context of one health are highlighted.
