Welcome to CPHAZ



At the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses (CPHAZ), we define 'one health' as an integration of multiple disciplines that focus on attaining optimal health for people, animals and the ecosystem. We are looking to learn more about the research happening at the University of Guelph that occurs at the intersect of animal, human and ecosystem health. We know this is a strength at Guelph, and are asking for your help by letting us know about your research in this field.

The Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) has a tradition of excellence in research and education in public health at the human-animal-environmental interface. Researchers at OVC enjoy close collaborations in public health research and teaching with other faculty at the University of Guelph, as well as colleagues from other universities and animal health and public health organizations.

The Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses (CPHAZ) was established in 2006, to coordinate existing public health research and promote new collaborative research activities designed to enhance our capacity to solve problems and implement solutions in public health at the human-animal-environmental interface and to expand the pool of educated personnel able to address the public health needs of the population.
