Research Professor One Health (Human-Animal Interface)

ITM Antwerp

 

ITM has a long tradition of interdisciplinary research into infectious diseases. Throughout the evolution of infectious diseases, pathogens have increasingly passed from animals to humans, with dramatic consequences. Some farming practices can increase the risk of harmful zoonoses. Animals and vectors are also often intrinsic parts of the life cycle of several pathogens that affect humans (zoonoses) and these infections can disproportionately affect subsistence communities throughout the world who are disproportionately exposed to domestic and wild animals. This human-animal interface entails multiple research needs and opportunities. A comprehensive understanding of the human-animal interface is more important than ever to combat infectious diseases.
