The One Health Center of Excellence at the University of Florida is an academic think tank that promotes and facilitates the implementation of the One Health vision. This focuses on understanding the interconnections between the health of humans, of animals, of plants and of the environment. The final objective of implementing the One Health vision is the promotion of the advancement of health of the system rather than of a single compartment. Innovative studies on how to co-advance health of humans, animals, plants and the environment can be developed by exploiting big data with an interdisciplinary approach.
As an undeniably useful starting point, we seek to provide interdisciplinary one health compliant approaches to previously mismanaged issues (eg Anti Microbial Resistance) although we also are active on providing potential novel solutions to contemporary issues.
The Center provides fellowships, internships and training on developing an approach towards health as a system.
