Ben Fletcher, SPCR trainee at the University of Oxford, was presented with a Nautilus Award by Green Templeton College on 25 June. The award recognises his outstanding contributions to college and university life, in particular his publication record, conference presentations, and competitive selection for the TUTOR-PHC (Transdisciplinary Understandings and Training on Research Primary Health Care) programme.

Ben is currently completing his DPhil in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford. He is investigating home blood pressure monitoring in hypertension using both quantitative and qualitative research methods. 

I would like to thank the SPCR for providing a great environment for my DPhil studies.  The opportunity to collaborate with students and researchers in the school has led to a number of publications, which along with my selection for TUTOR-PHC was the basis for my Nautilus award.  I hope to continue a link with the SPCR following completion of my studies this autumn.”
- Ben Fletcher
