One Health Symposium

One Health is a research perspective that considers the health of animals, humans and the environment as a single, integrated whole. Currently the faculty and students at the University of Delaware carry out an array of research that can be considered One Health. This symposium aims to bring the UD community together to share this research and discuss greater collaboration across campus under a campus wide One Health initative.

 

Agenda:

  • Keynote speech and film screening
  • Research presentations from University of Delaware faculty and graduate students
  • One Health at UD workshop
  • Poster session and reception

 

Speaker: Alison Van Eenennaam is a Cooperative Extension Specialist in the field of Animal Genomics and Biotechnology in the Department of Animal Science at University of California, Davis. She received a Bachelor of Agricultural Science from the University of Melbourne in Australia, and both an MS in Animal Science, and a PhD in Genetics from UC Davis. Her publicly-funded research and outreach program focuses on the use of animal genomics and biotechnology in livestock production systems. Her current research projects include the development of genomic approaches to select for cattle that are less susceptible to disease and the development of genome editing approaches for livestock. A passionate advocate of science, Van Eenennaam was the recipient of the 2014 Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST) Borlaug Communication Award.

Film: “Food Evolution” explores all the ways science has been used and abused in public discourse surrounding the genetic engineering of food.

 

Moderators: Ryan Arsenault and Kali Kniel, Department of Animal and Food Sciences
