COVID-19-related studies

The University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have made a huge contribution to the response to COVID-19 across multiple areas.

Even during periods where cases in the area are low, there continues to be funding calls for new studies and investigations.

Recent and ongoing studies

November 2021

To provide prospective researchers with information about what studies are already underway in Oxford, to avoid potential duplication of effort and to promote collaboration, a summary of 'recent and ongoing' clinical research activity is summarised here.

Recent and ongoing COVID-19 studies in Oxford (pdf, 214 KB)

This list is illustrative - not every study is listed - and it does not include studies of diagnostics.

This information will be updated periodically. Enquires about the status of specific studies or recruitment should be directed to the study team (the name of the principal investigator is provided in the slides).

Full list of studies

A complete list of studies, which includes additional information, is at the link below:

University of Oxford and OUH COVID-19 studies (Excel, 105 KB)

This list includes studies sponsored by the University of Oxford or OUH, as well as studies hosted by OUH. It includes all such studies, from those currently being set up to those which have now closed.

For further information about any of these studies, please contact the Chief Investigator (for University of Oxford-sponsored studies) or the principal investigator (for OUH-hosted studies with a sponsor other than the University).

Clinical Research Review Group (CRRG)

Throughout the pandemic a Joint OUH/University COVID-19 Clinical Research Review Group (CRRG), chaired by Prof Helen McShane (Director of the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre) and Prof Keith Channon (OUH Director of Research and Development) has been meeting weekly to prioritise and align resources to enable clinical studies in OUH.

The group continues to meet weekly to ensure that resourcing for new COVID-19-related research is considered in a timely manner.

Investigators are reminded of the need to apply to CRRG for COVID-19-related research. This should be done as early as possible - ideally before grant applications are submitted.

Resourcing discussions for non-COVID-19 research should proceed through your usual processes and does not need to come to CRRG.

Applications to CRRG should be submitted using our application form: for a copy of the form please email:
