Why you should get involved with us

The UAF Center for One Health Research (COHR) seeks to engage participants from UAF, Alaska and the circumpolar North to collaborate on building research programs to address the large, multifocal issues facing these regions.

We’ve had One Health research programs at UAF for more than 15 years, and we are now seeking to significantly expand these efforts by building interdisciplinary teams that will approach their investigations from a One Health perspective using constructionist, integrative approaches to help manage problems at their source rather than their outcome.

We’re pursuing large programmatic funding to support diverse, inclusive teams of researchers and their graduate and undergraduate students providing research mentorship at all levels.

These programs will focus on community involvement from their inception and work in a culturally sensitive, respectful way to include traditional knowledge and promote individual and community health and well-being for people, animals and the environment.
