Each fortnight, bulletin highlights and celebrates the latest prizes awarded to our fellow staff members. Congratulations to all involved.

Dr Keneth Kasozi and Husein Bagulo, from Professor Sue Welburn’s lab, have been awarded grants from the Royal Society for Tropical Medicine & Hygiene in recognition for their work in tropical medicine and global health. Keneth Kasozi will investigate institutional policy strengths and challenges in two developing countries while Husein Bagulo’s project aims to determine the public health burden of Hepatitis E and the role zoonotic and water-borne pathways play in infection transmission in humans and pigs in Ghana.

Diego Oyarzún, Reader in Computational Biology across the Schools of Biological Sciences and Informatics, has been appointed as Turing Fellow in 2021-22. The award encourages the fellows to provide expertise in their chosen fields of research, contribute to new ideas and drive collaborative projects.
