Humanimal Trust supports Royal Society of Biology's Biology Week

Far-reaching benefits of One Medicine are highlighted in a new ITN produced film which showcases how bioscience innovations could help improve our global future.

 

Humanimal Trust has teamed up with the Royal Society of Biology and ITN Productions sponsoring part of a film focusing on the ‘Biology for the Future’. The film, just  released to celebrate Biology Week 2020, aims to highlight the innovative work of several different bioscience organisations and asks how this work can help improve the future of our world.

During the film Humanimal Trust Trustee Dr Ben Marshall and Research and Outreach Manager Dr Tracey King discuss how a One Medicine approach can progress medicine for both humans and animals. They also explain why it’s so important for human and animal researchers and healthcare professionals to increase collaboration and work together - a need which has been particularly highlighted by the current pandemic.

 

“This film really helps us to spread the One Medicine message to new audiences. We’re so pleased to have this opportunity to tell people about the work that we do promoting and funding One Medicine research, and to encourage inter-disciplinary collaboration through our online platform the Humanimal Hub,” said Dr King. “We’re proud to be a part of this prestigious and forward thinking programme.”

 

The film is now available to view on the Royal Society of Biology’s YouTube channel.
