UK Health Security Agency
Dr Kerry Broom CBiol FRSB recently joined the HPRU as Knowledge Mobilization Manager, covering also the HPRU for Environmental Change and Health, and also the HPRU for Chemical and Radiation Threats and Hazards.
Kerry is working to mobilise knowledge generated in these three HPRUs, seeking opportunities for the translation of research into practice, policy and commercially, and strengthen the working relationships of stakeholders, the public and partners.
She has worked at the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) for over 15 years and during that time, Kerry has provided scientific secretariat to the UK Committee on Medical Aspects of Radiation in the Environment (COMARE) and to the High-Risk Aerosol Generating Procedures Panel set up during the COVID-19 pandemic. She also has experience in scientific management of the Radiation Protection Research programme for the Department of Health.In recent years, Kerry’s role has focussed on scientific research on the neurobiological effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs). She studied the effects of radiofrequency and power frequency field exposure on behaviour; gene expression and brain structure as well as exposure related effects on circadian rhythm control. She was involved with the international GERoNiMO project (Generalized EMF research using novel methods. An integrated approach: from research to risk assessment and support to risk management).
