Celebrate the resilience and collaboration behind Oxford's groundbreaking PANORAMIC and PRINCIPLE COVID-19 trials through "The PANORAMIC PRINCIPLE" exhibition. Artist Tanya Poole's powerful portraits honour the diverse array of participants, researchers, and medical professionals whose inclusive efforts set global benchmarks and transformed lives. An inspiring tribute to human determination in the face of adversity.

The Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health and Sciences (NDPCHS) Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) has taken the unique creative step of commissioning an Artist in Residence to honour the resilience and collaborative efforts of running the PRINCIPLE and PANORAMIC trials amidst the global adversity of COVID-19. 

While showcasing trial results often take the podium in medical research, the upcoming exhibition, “The PANORAMIC PRINCIPLE” transcends that traditional approach to spotlight the compelling human stories and weaves together elements of art and medical breakthroughs. The exhibition features a series of portraits of trial managers, GPs, community leaders, pharmacists, nurses, doctors, faith and religious group representatives, influencers, and trial participants. 

“The PANORAMIC PRINCIPLE” exhibition ignited from the monumental success of the PANORAMIC and PRINCIPLE clinical trials, which have been led out of the University of Oxford in collaboration with universities, general practices, clinical research networks, the NHS, and many voluntary, religious, and community organisations UK-wide. These trials, in response to the pandemic, set a global trial recruitment benchmark for a community-based trial in speed and scale. What makes them unique is their focus on reaching people beyond traditional treatment centres, delivering trial medications across the UK with unprecedented efficiency and reach.  


How to View the exhibition

A limited private viewing of the exhibition will take place in early April, before moving on to a public exhibition space later in the year.

Specific dates and viewing information will be announced on our web pages soon.
