Animals, humans and the environment are inextricably connected by microbes and infectious disease. This notion, termed 'One-Health', is a central tenant of veterinary medicine education and practice. Yet, it is becoming increasingly clear that 'bad' bugs are not the only microbes that veterinarians should be thinking about. In this talk, Dr. Dan Beiting, an Immunology researcher at PennVet, explores the emerging role of 'beneficial' microbial communities as key players in animal health and disease. By studying the microbial ecosystem that grows on the skin and in the gut of companion and agricultural animals, veterinarians will find themselves in a better position to diagnose and treat disease.
