Congratulations to our Fuse Award winners 2023
Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the first ever Fuse Awards at Durham University and a huge congratulations to our winners and those shortlisted.
This is our annual celebration of the outstanding contribution Fuse members make to the continued success of the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health.
The awards aim to encourage, celebrate and showcase high quality public health research with a strong focus on Communications, Public Involvement and Engagement and Translational Research.
All nominations were reviewed by a judging panel of Fuse public partners, staff members and colleagues from practice and policy. Shortlisted nominees were invited to take part in a celebration event on Monday 30 January 2023.
The standard of entries was exceptional and our panel of judges had tough decisions to make in all categories.
