EcoHealthNet 2.0 Applications are NOW OPEN!

http://ecohealthalliance.org/program/ecohealthnet

EcoHealthNet is an undergraduate and graduate-level global research coordination network, funded by the National Science Foundation, to bring together world-class research scientists from medical, ecology, veterinary, epidemiology, virology, anthropology, climate science, data science, and economics that will advance One Health research and education. Advancements will take place through three activities: 1) create a peer network of undergraduate and graduate STEM students from various disciplines via 1-week workshops that teach applied skills and provide in-person contact time with scientists actively conducting research related to anthropogenic environmental change, economics, and emerging diseases, which will also be delivered live as an interactive webinar to university students globally; 2) develop the next generation of One Health practitioners through mentored research projects that reflect One Health principles; 3) link participants to professional science and policy associations. This project will develop and deliver live online content to thousands of students on a global scale. This project will inspire broad, One Health research, which will create lasting connectivity among scientists from different disciplines as they advance in their careers.

The 2017 Workshop, Dealing with Emerging Threats to Global Health; Zoonoses and Antimicrobial Resistance, will be held at Tufts University in Massachusetts from June 11-17th, 2017. Research Exchange projects can take place between April and August 2017.

Deadline to apply is December 31, 2016.
