It’s worth making sure you have investigated them all. Funding bodies support PhD students in different ways; some will pay course fees only; some will include a stipend (maintenance costs) or travel expenses while others will simply be a one-off award to ease the financial burden of further study.

Swiss TPH : Human and Animal Health. The Human and Animal Health research unit (HAHU) focuses on the health of mobile populations and zoonoses control in developing countries, using an extended "One Health" conceptual approach.

Swiss TPH : Human and Animal Health

It examines the synergistic potential of closer cooperation between the human health and animal health sectors. Particular attention is paid to the added value of human and animal health; and the financial savings and environmental benefits from collaboration between all involved sectors. Increasingly, systemic approaches are pursued, which consider health as an outcome of social-ecological systems given its connections to social, cultural, economic and ecological dimensions.

John Edmunds on models of influenza transmission, immunisation and control. After graduating from the Ecole Centrale de Lille with a MSc in Control engineering from the University of Lille in 2000, I completed a PhD in 2003 on modelling the co-evolution of populations of bacteria and phages. In 2004, I took a position as Research Associate to work in collaboration with the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket, analysing data from equine influenza. In January 2009, I joined the Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England), UK to work with Profs Miller and Edmunds on the modelling and economical evaluation of immunisation policies in the United Kingdom.
