Departmental Research Projects
School for Public Health Research, £180,000
A research project of the Department of Geography.
Durham University, through its partnership with Fuse, The Centre for Translational Research in Public Health is part of a new body in England, the School for Public Health Research (SPHR).
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Public Health Research was established in April 2012. It is a partnership between eight leading academic centres - of which Fuse is one - with excellence in applied public health research in England. The School's aim is to develop the evidence base for public health practice by conducting practical research on what works in improving population health and reducing health inequalities, to better meet the needs of policymakers, practitioners and the public across the country.
The Department of Geography is currently collaborating on one SPHR-funded project, Communities in Control Study.
