“One Health is about achieving the best health for people, animals, and our shared environment—we are all connected,” said Paul Plummer, the executive director of NIAMRRE. “Innoceleris provides diagnostic tools that facilitate the detection, identification, and characterization of infectious agents affecting the livestock industry. Collaboration is one of our four focus areas, and improving diagnostic capabilities enables practitioners and producers to partner to make better-informed decisions about managing and treating disease outbreaks.”
