Mission:  The Stanford One Health 2016 symposium aims to educate medical and veterinary professionals on cutting edge cross-species basic and clinical research that benefits both humans and animals.  Recently, there is substantial interest within the research community in improving our understanding of diseases in animals and how to better utilize that knowledge to improve human and animal health.  Stanford is recognized around the world for its collaborative and innovative approaches to research and is now working to improve cooperation between veterinarians, medical doctors and basic science researchers.  We encourage the speakers and attendees to meet and discuss their research with scientists from other disciplines in order to foster innovative research collaborations and novel research directions.  

Pre-registered participants can partake in the lunch time working session (lunch provided).

Registration is now closed.
