Read how APHA's Surveillance and Laboratory Services Department stepped in with short notice to help make sure a rather important shipment to Rio could take place.
I work in the Science Strategy & Planning team and my main role is to lead on communication, strategy and change across the Science Directorate at APHA.
I manage the APHA Science Blog and help scientists with ensuring their science is communicated to a wider audience. We strive to cover science stories and successes from across the agency.
APHA has many national and international partners in both academia and research institutes. We also like to help young scientists get an insight into what life is like as a scientist in a government research facility like ours at Weybridge.
One of APHA’s Mammalian Ecologists from the National Wildlife Management Centre (NWMC) talks about how she helped capture and rehome a raccoon.
APHA staff get up to many exciting and interesting things. There are all the usual activities, such as attending international conferences, working on the research bench, writing papers for journals and much more. Sometimes they also go sailing!
