Welcome to the Experimental Medicine Website

Pipetting close up

Experimental Medicine is part of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Oxford. We have staff based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital, Peter Medawar and Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine sites.

Research within Experimental Medicine spans fundamental basic science to translational and experimental medicine approaches including clinical trials. We seek to understand the pathophysiology of disease and apply this knowledge to develop enhanced diagnostics and treatments for human disease.

Experimental Medicine's thematic research includes immunology, behavioural science, infectious diseases, gastroenterology, palliative care and respiratory medicine. The research is undertaken within different groups and research units and includes clinical trials.

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.
