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, the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospital.
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.
Following the recent launch of the government’s Living with COVID-19 guidance, the University has decided that current health measures will remain in place until 26 March in order to avoid disruption during term time. Protect one another from infection. There is still a high level of transmission of the virus, so the risk of infection remains high. COVID-19 can still pose a serious health threat to certain groups. Be considerate to them by continuing to follow the COVID-19 precautions.
Please continue to take the following actions until 26 March to minimise disruption to University life and academic studies this term:
- Test twice a week and if you have symptoms. Remember to report all your LFD results to both the University’s Early Alert Service and the NHS. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms, stay at home and avoid contact with others.
- Wear a face covering (unless exempt) when asked. Departments, as well as individual members of teaching staff, can continue to mandate face coverings in teaching and learning environments (unless individuals are exempt). Face coverings are strongly encouraged in libraries and should be worn when moving around University buildings.
- Let fresh air in when indoors: keeping windows and doors open increases ventilation and significantly reduces the spread of COVID-19. Please keep them open, particularly in areas which are poorly ventilated or where signs indicate the need to do so.
- Get your booster jab as soon as you’re eligible, and get a free flu jab if you can

Podcast: Meet our Researchers
Before translating basic research into the clinic it is important first to undergo clinical trials in order to identify safe treatments and therapies for disease. Led by Prof Simon Travis, the Gastroenterology Clinical Trials Facility at Oxford University works to translate basic research into clinical trials of novel therapies for gastrointestinal and liver diseases.
The Nuffield Department of Medicine operates unit-based formal mentoring schemes for all externally funded research fellows.
We currently have a large number of postgraduate students studying within Experimental Medicine.
