APHA’s Rabies and Viral Zoonoses workgroup undertake work to reduce the risk of rabies and protect animals and humans in the UK and abroad. In this blog, we hear from Dr. Guanghui Wu as she talks about this important area of work and her passion stemming from an early childhood experience.
As Senior Molecular Biologist at APHA, my team and I play a key role in detecting the emergence and minimising the spread of zoonotic bacterial pathogens in order to reduce the risk to human health.
One of the key actions taken forward in our first science strategy was to set up an APHA Science Advisory Board (SAB).
Welcome to the new APHA science blog. This is the first post on what I hope will become the first port of call for anybody interested in what the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) is doing in terms of science.
