Two clinicians from the region's mental health trust will lead research studies after being awarded money from a national institute.
Andrea Nunney and Tim Clarke, of Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, have secured funding from the National Institute for Health Research (East of England) and will be able to devote one day per week to their year-long studies.
Mrs Nunney is the first pharmacist to receive the funding since it was launched in the region in 2014.
Her research will focus on nurse prescribing while Dr Clarke will look at how different parts of the youth mental health service interacts with each other.
Mrs Nunney said: 'I feel honoured to be the first pharmacist in the region to be awarded this fellowship, and excited to begin my research.' Dr Clarke added: 'I hope our recommendations will be shared to help further improve the care which children and young people receive.'
