One Health - Interfaculty Research Cooperation

Titleimage: One Health - Interfaculty Research Cooperation

Established in 2018, the Inter-Faculty Cooperation (IRC) One Health fosters interdisciplinary research between the University of Bern`s Faculties of Science, Veterinary Medicine and Medicine, through an unifying framework that explores the impact of different types of chemicals on the health of food chains. This combines two of the University of Bern`s thematic priorities –sustainability and health/medicine.  The initiative has also supported young researchers, training a new generation of competent and interdisciplinary scientists.
