Healthy People, Healthy Planet
Human health and wellbeing are inextricably linked with animal, crop, soil and environmental health.
Our agri-food systems are putting an increasing burden on the environment and affecting ‘planetary health’. We investigate agri-food system innovations most likely to improve human health and wellbeing and wider planetary health.
Our interests include novel approaches to predict and control crop and livestock diseases and to reduce antimicrobial resistance; developing efficient, environmentally sensitive, sustainable, agri-food systems – systems that reduce waste, are resilient to climate and environmental change, and reduce environmental impact; and regulation of new technologies.
We welcome applicants for PhD studies in any of these areas, as well as discussions for research collaboration.
Please contact individual researchers for research collaboration. For more information on PhD admissions email RDSVS.PGR.Admin@ed.ac.uk
