Research at Oxford University Hospitals

Pioneering research at Oxford University Hospitals is tackling the major healthcare challenges of the 21st Century. The patients we serve benefit from discovery and innovation but also play a vital role in making it happen.

Our goal is to take innovation 'from bench to bedside' so that research findings are quickly applied to the NHS for the benefit of patients. World-leading research and clinical facilities are co-located across our hospital sites to foster a culture of collaboration and innovation that has patient treatment and care at its heart. Our broad research portfolio comprises more than 1,400 active studies and covers conditions including cancer, dementia and stroke.

From new surgery techniques to innovative genetic studies and digital technology, our research is having a major impact on improving the quality of care in Oxfordshire.
