About One Medicine Foundation

We’re dedicated to helping veterinary patients—specifically those who may have diseases that are also found in people. Since the organization was founded, we’ve made some important strides in our cause. We’ve been able to learn more about a painful neurological disease that affects more than 300,000 children, as well as puppies. We’ve expanded the use of state-of-the-art radiation treatment for pets. In addition, we’re developing special service programs to care for animals who have aided their human companions in so many ways.

We work to close the senseless gap between the findings of human and veterinary research.


Dedicated to research, education and service in the field of veterinary medicine, our mission is to advance the collective knowledge base, both human and veterinary, through research and clinical studies that benefit both worlds.


Originally called New York Veterinary Foundation, we were founded in 2006 as a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The name was changed to One Medicine Foundation in January 2023 to better align with the organization’s mission and international reach. Read more about this change.


We do this through work in three key areas:

Our research focuses on the interdependent relationship between humans and animals—and how what benefits one may also help enhance the life of the other.
