The value of One Medicine

Over the last century, both human and veterinary medicine have made numerous advancements. At the same time, despite significant overlap in diseases that affect humans and animals, our biomedical research efforts have become markedly more separate with very little cross-sharing of knowledge or resources. The AKC Canine Health Foundation believes that if we fund research that supports both human and canine health we can break down the current barriers between human and veterinary medicine and hasten the progress we make in solving some of our greatest health care challenges. To that end, Dr. Shila Nordone, CHF Chief Scientific Officer, will discuss the foundation’s efforts to influence the full spectrum of scientific discovery, from brain tumors and epilepsy to infectious disease and inflammation.
