THE UCL BALZAN FELLOWSHIPS
The UCL Balzan International Fellowship program has been made possible through the Balzan Prize awarded to Michael Marmot in 2004 and is designed to help develop the next cadre of researchers in the social determinants of health, whilst strengthening strategic international collaborations with the UCL International Institute for Society and Health. Its goal is to train scholars to:
- investigate new links between genetic, environmental and social determinants of health;
- improve the quality of evidence used for policy making and conceptualize the pathways to influence policy; and
- build inter-institutional collaborative ventures and build capacity on improving population health.
The fellowships are designed to invest in future researchers to help reduce inequalities in health between and within countries throughout the world.
