One Health Innovation Fellowships for Zoonotic Disease Research In Mongolia is a Duke University global project supported by funding by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Fogarty International Center. This training program is designed to address an immediate need in Mongolia for structured research training of professionals to effectively control zoonotic infections and establish an US-Mongolia multidisciplinary partnership to address zoonotic disease burdens in Mongolia. Through partnerships with Mongolia’s National Center for Zoonotic Diseases and the Institute of Veterinary Medicine, postdoctoral fellows from both countries work together to design and implement a unique research project to address a critical but complex One Health issue facing Mongolia’s people, animals, and environment. The fellowship consists of 2 months of intensive One Health training at Duke University in the United States followed by 22 months of mentored research at the Institute of Veterinary Medicine.
