Professor Noel Fitzpatrick speaks at The Hay Festival 2017.
Groundbreaking 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 Medicine’ approach, is one of the solutions for solving today’s greatest global health problems.
