11 February marks International Day of Women and Girls in Science, and we are celebrating the event by hearing from some of our scientists here at APHA, working to safeguard animal and plant health for the benefit of people, the environment and the economy.

As part of a series of videos highlighting how we safeguard with science, Nigel Semmence from the National Bee Unit talks about the Asian hornet, and APHA’s work to prevent the spread of this non-native species and protect bee health.
In the first of a series of videos highlighting how we safeguard with science, Prof Ian Brown, APHA's Head of Virology, talks about avian influenza (bird flu) and the work we do in our international reference laboratory at Weybridge.
In the coming weeks, you will notice that it’s much quieter than usual on this blog. It’s because between midnight on Friday, 21 April and the general election on 8 June is the pre-election period.
