The Institute has been made possible due to a generous donation from The Peter Bennett Foundation.

The Bennett Institute will bring together a diverse group of academics from a range of disciplines, including clinicians, software engineers, policy experts and statisticians. They will develop and implement new methods and tools to make data and evidence more impactful in the world, improving the lives of patients and citizens. Based within the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, the Bennett Institute will enhance and expand the work that has been undertaken to date by the DataLab.
