New public health research partnerships to receive funding

23rd December 2013

Public Health England has announced 13 new partnerships with universities, which will be funded from a pot of 47.5 million pounds.

Universities competed for the money – which was drawn from existing research funding – through a competition run by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), with successful applicants having now been announced by the Department of Health.

Applications were assessed by an international panel, with the 13 successful applications offered funding to form units across 12 public health priority areas, ranging from immunisation to radiation hazards.

This means there will now be a strengthened national research focus across a number of key areas, including emergency preparedness and response and the impact of environmental hazards.

Chief medical officer Professor Dame Sally Davies said: "By focusing on research across a wide range of public health areas, the units will take new scientific discoveries from the lab to benefits for patients and the public."

Since January 2013, the NIHR has supported 509 new life science industry studies through its Clinical Research Network, 145 more than during 2012.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801675737-ADNFCR
