Making the world safe and secure from emerging infectious and neglected tropical diseases by applying One Health – the synergy of animal, human, and environmental sciences – to global health and security.
Global One Health educational and student research opportunities are available across the Texas A&M University campus. Check out our partner programs below.
This training program is a collaborative international biorisk management training program, which was awarded a grant of $1.3 million from the United States Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate. The program takes research to technology transition and commercialization in select agent and transboundary animal diseases that are of a high agricultural and economic importance to both national and global economies. The first cohort of eight next generation scientists from the United States and South Africa completed the program last summer, receiving a Certificate in Scientific Business and Development and Management. The second cohort of 9 students will begin training this upcoming June. Bench to Shop is organized in conjunction with the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science's Department of Veterinary Pathobiology (VTPB) and the Institute for Infectious Animal Disease (IIAD).

This program is funded by the USDA-FAS to Texas A&M Agrilife Research (TA-CR-16-041) in partnership with ARC-OVI in Pretoria, South Africa. The objective of the project is to promote better biosafety and biosecurity practices by small-scale livestock producers throughout four provinces in South Africa.
Specifically, this project focuses on three areas:
1. Enhancing capacity of the local veterinary and laboratory diagnostic personnel
2. Increasing knowledge and best practices for small farmers
3. Promoting awareness of the importance of biosecurity through the implementation of web-based technologies that will allow livestock owners, animal health workers, the veterinary workforce, and diagnostic laboratories to more easily diagnose key infectious livestock diseases

This program invites undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows to participate in research at Texas A&M University and offers a wide variety of One Health-related research projects.
Two complementary programs have been established to help Aggies create their own leadership and research opportunities, regardless of vocational goal, discipline of study, or level of experience. These are:
Team Leaders and Faculty Mentors have created more than 400 undergraduate research opportunities since Spring 2016. For a list of current opportunities, visit http://aggieresearch.tamu.edu.
