A recent Ebola preparedness assessment completed by researchers at the University of Minnesota and Africa One Health University Network (AFROHUN) helped Uganda identify gaps in its health care system and worker readiness for an outbreak in the Kasese and Rubirizi districts of southwestern Uganda. Ebola constitutes one of the biggest public health threats in human history. On average, 50 percent of the individuals who contract the virus die.
With $200,000 in new funding from the University of Minnesota Office for Academic and Clinical Affairs Faculty Research Development Grant, researchers from the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Medical School, led by Molly McCue, DVM, MS, PhD, DACVIM, and Suma Jacob, MD, PhD, will address the critical need to more effectively identify and train assistance dogs (AD) that serve people with Autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
