Leadership Instincts

An academic from the University of Bristol has been appointed a Global Health Challenge Leader by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and will join the flagship international development research scheme, the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). Helen Lambert, Professor of Medical Anthropology in the Bristol Medical School: PHS, has taken up the role GCRF Challenge Leader for Global Health. Professor Lambert has a background of research into antimicrobial resistance, HIV prevention with vulnerable communities, and the social and cultural dimensions of health systems.

Professor Lambert is joining the team of GCRF Challenge Leaders, who are maximising the impact of the GCRF across six portfolio areas: global health, food systems, resilience, cities and sustainable infrastructure, education and protracted conflict and refugees.

Their role is to forge diverse and exciting equitable partnerships between UK researchers and academics, policy makers and community groups across developing countries to ensure that GCRF funded research responds to the needs of poorer countries and moves the world closer towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
