Named in recognition of a generous donation from the Peter Bennett Foundation, the new Bennett Institute is based within the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford.
The Bennett Institute builds on a foundation of world-leading healthcare data science from the DataLab at the University of Oxford. It brings together a diverse group of academics from a range of disciplines, including clinicians, software engineers, policy experts and statisticians. Together, as the Bennett Institute, they will develop, use and evidence new tools and methods that will ensure data and evidence can have impact in the world, improving the lives of patients and citizens.
The newly appointed ‘Bennett Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine’, Professor Ben Goldacre, is also the inaugural director of the Bennett Institute.
