One Health Collaborative
TGen One Health Collaborative seeks to understand the larger health problems of our time by studying the connections between humans, animals, and the environment. We can then apply next-generation technology and knowledge to address these problems in a holistic manner that understands the microbial universe is shared among all living systems.

We work directly with other health researchers, physicians, healthcare workers, and public health officials; wildlife managers, ranchers, and agriculturalists; and environmental health and quality officials to apply these approaches to basic and translational research to maximize health impacts.

Strategic Focus Areas

  • Our approach: Human, Animal, and Environment
  • Population health and genomic epidemiology
  • Antibiotic resistance and healthcare-acquired infections
  • Diagnostic and prognostic tool development and translation
  • Microbial evolution, pathogen dispersal, and emerging infections
