Sarah Cleaveland is Professor of Comparative Epidemiology at the University of Glasgow and is considered an international leader in One Health research. By pioneering new approaches to estimating the human rabies burden, she has shown that there is a 100-fold under-reporting of cases in Africa. Her research showed that canine rabies can be eliminated through vaccination of 70% of dogs and that this is feasible across Asia and Africa, even in wildlife-rich areas. |Throughout her career, Professor Cleaveland has demonstrated a zeal for combining high quality science with translational impact to improve the health and wellbeing of people in impoverished and neglected communities.
