The 2nd One Health & Outbreak Surveillance Symposium is proudly organised by the Centre for Infectious Disease Epidemiology & Research (CIDER). Led by Dr. Pang Junxiong Vincent, CIDER is partnering various health agencies in Singapore for this symposium.
Housed in the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Heath, National University of Singapore, CIDER is an academic and research centre specialized in disease surveillance and epidemiological research to deter and control potential infectious disease outbreaks.
The inaugural One Health Symposium successfully wrapped up in 2018, with over 300 participants and stakeholders in attendance.
Department of Geography at the National University of Singapore is a long-established and thriving research and learning hub in one of the most amazing and dynamic cities in the world. Research in the Department is clustered into three groups: Tropical Environmental Change (TEC); Social and Cultural Geographies (SCG); and Politics, Economies And Space (PEAS). The department hosts Singapore’s first, and still only, dedicated graduate programme in GIS (MSc Applied GIS), launched in 2016, in addition to authoring the Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography (SJTG, published by Wiley-Blackwell) for the past 70 years.
We thank Associate Professor Wang Yi-Chen of NUS Geography for her support in this symposium. A/P Wang Yi Chen’s research interests spans landscape epidemiology, ecological consequences of land use/cover change and GIS and remote sensing applications.
