UW-Madison Global Health Institute and Ella Foundation ink agreement to establish the first-ever UW-Madison One Health Centre in India

University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison Global Health Institute (GHI) in the US and the Ella Foundation, founded by Dr Krishna Ella and Suchitra Ella, signed a bi-lateral agreement in New Delhi recently to establish the first ever UW-Madison One Health Centre in Bengaluru. The Centre is expected to be operational by end of 2023.

UW-Madison One Health Centre will advance the development and production of new vaccines for India. Furthermore, the partnership will enable collaboration across disciplines and geographic boundaries, provide Indian students and researchers access to UW expertise and training, and build research capacity in India.

One of the key benefits of the One Health Centre is to provide opportunities for UW students and researchers to work first-hand with emerging infectious diseases, collaborate with new colleagues, and see how environment, politics, and social structures affect health.

“Both Ella Foundation and UW-Madison GHI share a common vision to advance innovation in science, research, and knowledge sharing. Establishing the UW-Madison Global One Health Centre holds great significance as it will advance global health through research, education, and community engagement by facilitating student, faculty exchanges, research and education,” said Dr Krishna Ella, Director, Ella Foundation, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Bharat Biotech.

UW-Madison GHI Director Dr Jorge Osorio said, “The partnership between GHI and the Ella Foundation will continue GHI’s outreach efforts to establish a One Health Centre in India. The India One Health Centre joins a global network that includes Africa and Latin America and will open new opportunities for research, education, and provide actionable outcomes to benefit humans, animals, and ecosystems that advance equitable and sustainable health across India and the world."
