Fuse Director recognised by NIHR in 2023 awards

Fuse Director Professor Ashley Adamson has been reappointed as a Senior Investigator by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR).

NIHR Senior Investigators are among the most prominent and prestigious researchers funded by the NIHR. They are outstanding leaders of patient and people-based research within the NIHR research community. They are critical to the NIHR and the development of advances in health research.

On hearing of her reappointment, Ashley said: "I am honoured to have been reappointed as an NIHR Senior Investigator among such esteemed colleagues. We are facing many complex public health challenges that need high-quality research to generate evidence and contribute to solutions so it is especially good to see more academics working in public health and social care amongst the NIHR Senior Investigator cohort."
