One Health Headlines: Friday, December 2, 2011

Happy Friday! In honor of World AIDS Day, which was observed this Thursday, we’re leading off this week’s One Health roundup with a story highlighting how tests on laboratory mice have led to promising developments in the search for an HIV vaccine.

We also have stories on the effects of combat stress on military dogs, Bali’s fight against rabies, how animals predict earthquakes, and Australia’s new (and groundbreaking) biosecurity lab.

Thanks for reading, and have a happy and healthy weekend!
