Inhalt Description: This seminar extends the lecture “Ecology of Infectious Disease at the Human-animal Interface” and responds to the demand of students to provide deeper insight and practical work on “One Health” methods. It is provided by a veterinary epidemiologist and a mathematician. The audience are advanced students and PhD candidates in the fields of epidemiology, biology, veterinary and human medicine. They should have taken the course Modelling of Infectious Diseases (by Nakul Chitnis and Melissa Penny, 28873-01) or should be currently taking it. The Seminar is composed of lectures, self-study, discussions and practical seminars.

Content: Theoretical foundations of “One Health”, One health study design
Ecology of the animal-human interface, Dynamics and economics of cross-species disease transmission (the students will work through a practical example of an animal-human transmission model and a cross-sector economic analysis of an intervention). For 2016 the following topics are proposed, Reanalysing an existing dog-human rabies model and extending it to a meta-population model., Develop a dog-human rabies transmission model for Morocco in conjunction with echinococcosis and Leishmania transmission., Develop an age and sex structured brucellosis transmission model
Lernziele The seminar provides theoretical and practical insight to “One Health”, from for advanced students in biology, veterinary and human medicine and related fields. At the end of the seminar, students are able to develop their own animal-human transmission models and “One Health” studies.
Bemerkungen Methods: The Seminar is composed of lectures, self-study, discussions and practical seminar work.
