One Health Conference

IPFD Board Member Dr. Patricia Olson was the keynote speaker at the Inaugural One Health Program at Midwestern University on October 8, 2015 (Downer’s Grove, Illinois).  Midwestern University also has one of the newest veterinary schools in the U.S. (Phoenix, Arizona).  Physicians were paired with veterinarians to deliver lectures on obesity, pneumonia, osteochondritis dissecans and epilepsy.  Dr. Olson’s lecture was on collaborative research, using the clues from animals to help advance both human and animal health/welfare.  See the pdf of her thought-provoking talk here:    PN Olson Midwestern University One Health Keynote 10012015.pdf

Comparative Research News

In the past few years some of my time has been spent developing a new medical research model that advances both animal and human health. In addition, I have been working with national humane groups and the pet industry to advance strategies for breeding healthy dogs. From time to time I will submit blog entries about some of the interesting work I come across.   May 30, 2015 – Met with a donor in Minnesota who is funding collaborative research between medical and veterinary researchers to evaluate if there is a benefit of cannabis in controlling refractory epilepsy in children and dogs. University of Minnesota will be holding a conference on brain disorders in 2016, and this topic will be addressed. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Dr. Ned Patterson, University of Minnesota. June 8-9, 2015 – The Institute of Medicine (National Academies of Science) will be hosting a meeting to discuss the role of clinical studies for pets with naturally occurring tumors in translational cancer research. The goal is for drug development for humans, which might also be used to help dogs. Thus, the entire family (humans and animals) could benefit from the research strategies.
