These perspectives are vital to tackling our most urgent global health challenges, including the emergence of new infectious agents, increases in autoimmune diseases, the obesity epidemic, and threats to food safety and nutritional needs of growing populations. Across the Triangle, TriCEM is tapping into the wealth of medical, veterinary and public health expertise across schools at Duke, UNC, NC State, NC Central, East Carolina University, and more. We are also capitalizing on growing interest in "One Health-One Medicine" perspectives in the Triangle, and the extensive knowledge of ecology, evolution, and the environment at our universities. We hope to see you at a TriCEM-supported activity in the near future!
