Academic Career Development

The ethos of our HPRU is to promote learning and facilitate the career progression of all who contribute to our research programme, which includes PhD award holders, HPRU staff and other trainees. Our main goals for the five-year duration of our current grant are to:

  1. strengthen the capacity of dynamic multi-disciplinary team to ensure that we are equipped to address current and future public health and immunisation research priorities,
  2. engage proactively with the NIHR research infrastructure to nurture mutually beneficial research collaboration and learning partnerships with other HPRUs, ARCs and BRCs, and
  3. consolidate our contribution to the training of Public Health and General Practice registrars and students engaged in post-graduate public health related courses.

To achieve these goals, we will build on our existing internal HPRU and broader institutional teaching and learning capacity and seek to access additional training support through the NIHR Academy and the broader NIHR research infrastructure.
