Public health circles will remember 2014 as “The Year of the Virus.” APHL’s activities centered on preparedness and response to these pathogens, including collaboration with CDC to deploy the Department of Defense developed Ebola assay to US LRN labs. Other activities included promoting ISO accreditation for US food and feed testing laboratories and initiating a grant program to expand state newborn screening activities for SCID, among other things. The year’s accomplishments would not have been possible without federal, corporate and nonprofit partners. Read the annual report.
