Duke One Health Students Take the Lead on Publications

October 06, 2018

Duke One Health researchers and their international collaborators have published more than 20 articles this year, detailing studies of parasites, viruses and surveillance techniques from the United States to Mongolia. 

These papers bring new insights to the One Health field, but there’s something else that stands out about them: more than half were co-authored by Duke Global Health Institute students and new graduates. And students—including undergraduates—and recent alumni were the lead authors on about a third of them.

Any researcher knows that getting published requires hard work, commitment and perseverance, and this is especially true for students and recent graduates who are new to the academic world. 

The strong representation of student authors is a credit to Greg Gray, professor of medicine, global health and environmental health and head of Duke’s One Health team, who takes mentorship seriously and works closely with students to help them publish their research.

“DGHI does a good job preparing students to conduct research,” said Gray. “We have the fun of helping them apply their classroom training to the field, which often prompts them to ask unique scientific questions.” He noted that many of his student mentees who publish their first research go on to seek further training and opportunities to become career researchers.

Take a look at the recent publications co-authored by students and recent alumni:
