One Health 

At UCD, One Health research is a response to societal demands for sustainable and ethically sound solutions to global health and environmental issues. It also the concept of creating alliances across disciplines that can deliver solutions to challenges that affect the health and wellbeing of humans, animals and the environments they share.

A clear strength within UCD in this area relates to it having Ireland’s only veterinary medicine school. Another is its contemporary urban campus where One Health scientists, engineers and veterinary and medical clinicians work together to build a better future for all. Within UCD Conway Institute, there are also ample opportunities for comparative disease work between humans and animals.
