Welcome to the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, a partnership between the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals, funded by the National Institute for Health Research.

Get Involved

Active involvement in clinical research at our centre in Oxford may give you the opportunity to have a say in how the research is carried out or to comment on research in an area that has affected you, your family or friends. Whatever time you can spare, or whatever your interests are in the work at our Research Centre, we welcome you to get involved.


We connect with schools to help generate interest and excitement among young people in biomedical research and the associated careers. We will show young people the potential that research has to change lives and how, as individuals they can take part by seizing on the vast array of career opportunities available or by participating in the research itself.



We host free events throughout the year to keep the public and our partners informed about BRC-supported research. These include public talks, open days and seminars for professionals. Previous events have covered topics such as allergies, cancer, meningitis and hip fractures. To watch videos of our talks and other films about the work of the Oxford BRC, please visit our video library.



All of our public talks and events are filmed for our website, giving visitors more than 26 hours of content about world-leading medical research supported by the BRC. Keep an eye on our video page for new videos of our insightful events about the research we help enable. For information about our public talks, which are held throughout the year, please visit our events page.



We collaborate with industry, patient groups, charities and other academic institutions on research projects which aim to improve patient care. The partnership between Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Oxford allows us to offer the complementary input of clinicians, academics and patients, as well as world-leading facilities, expertise and resources.
