Il centro che dirigo ha la missione di avanzare la salute come “sistema”. Si pone l’obiettivo di sviluppare idee e proposte interdisciplinari per il co-avanzamento della salute dell’ uomo, degli animali, delle piante e dell’ambiente utilizzando i big data e l’intelligenza artificiale.
Ci occupiamo anche di leadership femminile e di usare l’arte come linguaggio per veicolare contenuti scientifici.
One Health Center of Excellence @UF
The One Health Center of Excellence at the University of Florida is a multidisciplinary think tank that promotes and facilitates the implementation of the One Health vision. It 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 that of a single compartment. Innovative studies on how to co-advancehealth of humans, animals, plants and the environment can now be developed by exploiting big data with an interdisciplinary approach.
The Center provides fellowships, internships and the OH Minds program to provide tools, methodologies and ideas to promote the vision of One health – i.e. treating health as a circular asset -rather than as a condition which is relevant only to one or few selected species.
As an undeniably useful starting point, we seek to provide interdisciplinary one health 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.
- Fellowships: are provided by the Center or by sponsors as aggregation catalysts for addressing complex interdisciplinary issues and provide funds to pay faculty time. Calls are published every year.
- Internships: are funded by a sponsor with the objective of advancing an unexplored aspect of a previous project.
- OH Minds program: are a unique model to develop tailored interdisciplinary solutions with great potential. They are only externally funded.
