Dr. Peter Rabinowitz is Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences and Director of the UW Center for One Health Research. Dr. Rabinowitz is also Co-Director of the UW Alliance for Pandemic Preparedness, an interdisciplinary effort to prepare, prevent and respond to global emerging disease outbreak threats.
The Center for One Health Research explores linkages between human, animal and environmental health in a “One Health” paradigm, including: zoonotic infectious diseases at the human-animal interface, animals as “sentinels” of environmental health hazards and clinical collaboration between human health care providers and veterinarians in a species-spanning approach. A goal of the center is to serve as an incubator and organizer of research, training and clinical activities at the University of Washington related to the human-animal-ecosystem interface. The Center also manages the Occupational Health at the Human Health Interface research training program.
Dr. Rabinowitz has been a visiting scientist at the Global Influenza Program of the World Health Organization and in the Animal Health Division of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, where he researched zoonotic diseases. He is the co-editor, with Lisa Conti, DVM, MPH, of the clinical manual Human Animal Medicine: Zoonoses, Toxicants and other Shared Health Risks. (Elsevier 2010) He is co-director, with Malika Kachani, DVM, PhD, of the Stone Mountain Working Group on One Health Proof of Concept Research.
