EcoHealthNet Application Process is now CLOSED!
The 2015 Workshop, International One Health: Conservation Medicine Policy and Practice, will be held at Tufts University in Massachusetts from May 31st-June 6th. Research Exchange projects can take place between March and August 2015.
The EcoHealthNet Workshop is a one-week workshop designed to bring together graduate students and research scientists from various scientific disciplines to learn about concepts and tools used in disease ecology research. Workshop participants receive five days of high-level didactic and practical training from experts on topics related to disease ecology, such as mathematical disease modeling; GIS and spatial analysis; field and laboratory techniques for zoonotic disease research; the economics of emerging diseases; and critical review of published studies. Successful applicants will be involved in research projects or have research interests that will directly benefit from the skills and insights learned during the workshop. Students may be asked to give a brief presentation of their current research as part of the workshop. Participants will build professional networks with fellow workshop participants and instructors who are leaders in their field.

EcoHealthNet Research Exchange Interns work under the guidance of a research mentor developing a study within the scope of high-profile, well-funded U.S. and international-based research projects. Participants are expected to work with their assigned mentors to craft a project that will fit into the scope of the main program and allow the student to learn about research design, data collection, analysis and publication. Past internship projects have included Nipah virus ecology in Bangladesh; avian influenza dynamics in China; disease surveillance in imported wildlife, New York; wildlife disease surveillance in Brazil and Malaysia; coronavirus diversity in bats; and White Nose Syndrome ecology in the United States.
Research Exchange projects last 6-12 weeks and are open from March - August 2015. More information is included in the below PDF.
