Experimental Medicine is part of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Oxford. Staff are based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, the Churchill Hospital, the Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research and the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine.
Administration support for Experimental Medicine is based on Level 5 of the John Radcliffe Hospital in Headington with research units having their own admin support attached to where they are based.
The University of Oxford will be running its first ever European Researchers’ Night on 29 September 2017.
We currently have a large number of postgraduate students studying within Experimental Medicine.
The NDM Graduate Prize winners for 2016 are Emma Davenport, Symon Kariuki, Sarah McCuaig, Manuel Rivas and Joshua Tan. The winners were awarded a £500 prize. This year’s winners have worked across many research areas including malaria vaccine work, behavioural studies and software development.
Understanding how an infection spreads is vitally important for prevention. Whole genome sequencing of microorganisms allows us to construct family trees of infections, from donnor to recipients, and understand how microbes behave in general. Through its genetic code, we can also predict whether a germ is susceptible or resistant to a specific antibiotic, and give patients a more stratified and personalised treatment, as explained by Professor Derrick Crook.
