One Health Approach to Ecosystem Health and Sustainability
ESP embraces ecosystem health and sustainability as a research and academic focus under the One Health approach. We concentrate on environmentally derived human diseases, wildlife health and disease, and sustainability of socio-ecological systems that support healthy humans and ecosystems. Current research includes emerging infectious diseases of terrestrial and marine life ranging from corals to mammals, zoonotic diseases, sediment and soil ecosystems impacted by oil spills and bacterial wateborne pathogens.
