The NIHR School for Public Health Research sponsored this year’s poster awards at the Lancet’s, Public Health Science: A National Conference Dedicated to New Research in UK Public Health, held in London on 29 November.
The conference provides an opportunity for academics, practitioners, and policy makers to come together to discuss important public health issues, learn about new research and its role in advancing and supporting public health practice, policy and health services to improve the health of the public.
The School believes building research capacity in public health, and inspiring the next generation of researchers in England is crucial in tackling public health challenges of the future.
The poster awards, sponsored by the School recognise early career researchers who work in public health science showcasing “exceptional talent and creativity in the UK Public Health research community”.
