Experimental Medicine Division is a collection of research groups within the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine who are based at a number of sites including; John Radcliffe Hospital, Peter Medawar Building, Churchill Hospital, including Old Road Campus (please see site map) and the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM).
Led by Professor Fiona Powrie who is an active researcher, we employ in the region of 200 scientific research staff working in a range of basic science and clinical disciplines, with many contributing to the teaching of medical students within Oxford University's Clinical School. Many of our employees have honorary contracts with the NHS. We also have NHS employees with University of Oxford honorary contracts and others who are part of Experimental Medicine but who are aligned to other University departments. Our research includes immunology, infectious diseases, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, palliative care, and geratology including clinical studies, with capacity building an integral aspect to all of our activities.
The administration team handling all our Division's grants, finances and personnel management is based at the John Radcliffe Hospital on Level 5 with many of the Units having smaller teams of administration who are linked to the main administrative office. There are also a large number of postgraduate research students.
