A photography exhibition showcasing ground-breaking NHS research taking place across the Thames Valley has been launched in Oxford.

'The Body Unlocked: How Research is Changing Lives’ features life-sized photographs of people who have taken part in studies, researchers at work and microscopic images of cells and bacteria.

Images include surgeons preparing a pioneering gene therapy injection for vision loss, dogs smelling urine to detect cancer, a close-up of cells responsible for controlling blood sugar and a virtual reality headset to treat mental illnesses.

The exhibition can be seen for the next two months at Oxford’s Covered Market (to 15 April), in the windows of a unit in the centre of the market, opposite Wicked Chocolate.
