For the TEG funded Fellowship round for 2014-2016 we were able to support three fellows rather than the usual one, thanks to additional support from the School’s Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health and the Medical Statistics Department. The Faculty provided funding for Abdul’s fellowship and the Medical Statistics Department provided funding for Bernard. We extend our thanks to both the Faculty and the Department for this additional support.
