The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has funded a new Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Health Data Science at the University of Oxford. The Centre will be located within the Big Data Institute, and will play a leading role in training the next generation of health data scientists.

Outside of the big data institute

The training programme will be led by the University’s Department of Computer Science, with strong engagement from the Departments of Statistics, Engineering Science, Medicine, and Population Health, together with the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities (WEH).  The students will be able to work with a wide range of partner organisations, including: Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, Microsoft, IBM, NVIDIA, McLaren, Celgene, Sensyne Health, GSK, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Insilico Medicine, Elsevier, Zegami, UCB, Perspectum, the CRUK Oxford Cancer Centre, University College Blockchain Centre, MedaPhor, and the Li Ka Shing Foundation.
