Over the last four years we’ve been running a large and interesting pig health project, with farmers taking part in a range of intervention trials to see what worked in terms of Salmonella control.
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.
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!
