Jonna Mazet, a professor of epidemiology and disease ecology and director of the Wildlife Health Center and One Health Institute at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, has been elected to the Institute of Medicine, one the nation’s highest honors in health and medicine.

To address global health challenges, Mazet employs a One Health approach, the philosophy for which the One Health Institute she directs is named. One Health recognizes that humans, animals and the environment are inextricably linked. As director of the $75 million program PREDICT, she has brought together an interdisciplinary team of experts to develop and support a global early warning system for emerging diseases that move between wildlife and people, such as HIV, ebola and SARS.

Her leadership has expanded the One Health workforce by more than 2,500 people and discovered 250 viruses known to cause epidemics.

As director of the Wildlife Health Center, she has overseen accomplishments that include diagnosis of novel infections, tracked pathogen pollution from its victims to the source, and contributed to the conservation of endangered species, from mountain gorillas in Rwanda to sea otters in California.

Mazet also founded California’s Oiled Wildlife Care Network at UC Davis, the world’s premier model for wildlife emergency health response, as well as the Health for Animals and Livelihood Improvement (HALI) project, which aims to reduce infectious disease transmission in the Ruaha ecosystem of Tanzania.
