Sebastian Fuller

Senior Postdoctoral Social Scientist

Implementation Science in Global Health

Dr Sebastian Fuller is a Senior Postdoctoral Social Scientist in implementation science in global health. Following his MA in cultural anthropology he worked as a behavioural health researcher in the USA, and as a health extension volunteer in Ghana, before receiving his PhD from University College London.  

His research has ranged from investigation of adoption of new point-of-care tests for STIs in NHS England, investigating social and structural barriers and facilitators to implementing diagnostic tests in low- and middle-income countries and understanding the factors influencing social acceptability of genetically modifying plants to develop novel healthcare and food products in Europe. He has received funding for his work from the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme, the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP), the UK National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), Innovate UK, and the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

Sebastian’s research is focused on investigating methods for translating novel technologies into practice and the implications of this on health systems and populations. His work on the NIHR- funded HIGH-Q project in Kenya is focused on developing theory for how an intervention to healthcare professionals impacts the introduction of new technologies and healthcare staff into neonatal care units. He is also an invited consultant for the World Health Organization Department of Reproductive Health and Research, and leads social science and public communications work for the European Commission -funded Photoboost project.
