The HPRU Academy vision is to expand our world-leading wide-ranging research in STIs/BBVs to be recognised as an international centre-of-excellence in the field.
We aim to develop research capacity by:
- Building on our HPRU Academy, recruiting our next cohort of students, and working with UCL’s masters/doctoral training programmes to increase the number of students working on HPRU-affiliated projects
- Expanding the HPRU through development of our Academy PhD programme
- Providing access to a range of short courses through the HPRU Academy, including courses for multiple stakeholder groups (including patient/public representatives, local HPTs and field epidemiology teams) thus building capacity in multi-disciplinary research across the HPRU and nationally
Results to date:
We have recently advertised for our next cohort of HPRU Academy PhD students, who will be taking on a diverse range of projects working across our Research Themes, and we hope that they will start the studentships between Spring and Autumn 2021.
