APHA Scientific Project Manager
Dr Christopher Nichols manages a range of projects within the Bacterial Disease and Food Safety portfolio at APHA.
Christopher also has a research background in forest ecology, with particular reference to the grey squirrel.
Chris Nichols interviews David Everest of the Pathology Department at APHA Weybridge about how work in the bio-imaging unit led him and colleagues to undertake a long-term study on adenovirus in UK captive red squirrel breeding programmes.
