Professor Noel Fitzpatrick – Hay Festival 2016

Pioneering surgeon Professor Fitzpatrick, Channel 4’s The Supervet, founder of Fitzpatrick Referrals and founding partner of Surrey University’s new school of veterinary medicine, has a radical vision: Humans and animals share genetic, physiological, environmental and even emotional bonds. For a sustainable future should they not share medicine, too?

What are the practical and moral implications of being a ‘Humanimal’?

Noel FitzpatrickGroundbreaking research is driving new technology, drugs, procedures and strategies to fight once-intractable global ailments. Few know that cancer still kills more people in low- and middle-income countries than HIV, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

Fourteen million people are diagnosed with cancer every year with a much greater number going undiagnosed.

The cancer in a dog is almost identical to the cancer in a human. Professor Fitzpatrick, ‘The Supervet’, renowned for his life-saving bionic surgeries and his work investigating disease, passionately believes that a single shared medicine linking human and animal health, a ‘One Health’ approach, is the best model for solving today’s greatest global health problems.
