Efforts ramping up on human-animal health research collaboration
What can we learn from animals to help humans and vice versa?
To help answer this, Kansas State University and the University of Missouri-Kansas City have created 1Data – a clearinghouse platform for an array of standardized pre-clinical human and animal health data.
Once completed, researchers in industry, health care and higher education can mine the platform for specific cross-species information. They can use this information to fully simulate traditional research with animal models – decreasing the need for animal models while also identifying congruencies between human and animal diseases. This helps enhance the regulatory process and accelerates the development of drugs and medical technology for people and animals.
