This document sets out a wide range of science highlights achieved throughout the year in support of APHA’s Science Strategy 2015-20. It shows the range of animal and plant health expertise within the Agency and demonstrates the importance and value of linking surveillance and research activities to rapidly investigate and respond to new threats; including those with potential public health impact. It also shows our important role in the protection of animal and plant health and animal welfare.

The science highlights are grouped around our science portfolios as well as the main scientific disciplines working across the APHA. Important achievements are also published regularly on the APHA science blog on GOV.UK. The aim of the blog is to improve the communication of our science to a wider audience. It covers a range of scientific highlights from special interest stories on our scientists through to more detailed reports on the excellent science we do.
