Fuse (the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health) is the brand name of a partnership between public health researchers across the five universities in north-east England: Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside. The focus of Fuse is about working with policy makers and practitioners, enabling research findings to be understood and applied to public health issues, for example, diet and exercise, and socio-economic inequalities.

In April 2012 Fuse was accepted by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) as one of only eight member organisations to form a new body in England - the School for Public Health Research (SPHR)
