New tool to predict risk of lung cancer
A team of researchers from the University of Oxford and the University of Nottingham have developed a new tool, called ‘CanPredict’, able to identify the people most at risk of developing lung cancer over the next 10 years, and put them forward for screening tests earlier, saving time, money and, most importantly, lives.
Our researchers work across the full range of biomedical and clinical sciences, from the molecule to large population studies. The excellence of our research is recognised by our top placing in international league tables.
From clinical trials to new challenges in medical ethics, our research revolves around the difference it can make to people’s lives around the world.
The power of data
Using massive clinical datasets we can find associations between health outcomes and potential contributing factors.
Insights in the Lab
We develop and apply cutting-edge techniques of analysis and imaging, from molecular scales to the whole body.
Resources for Researchers
Explore events, opportunities, funding, research practice and training, translation and innovation and much more.
Internal Research Funding
There are a variety of funding opportunities available to support research, public engagement and awards.
Research Strategy & Funding Team
We support the Division’s research mission and researchers by facilitating research strategy, policy and funding.
Public Engagement with Research is ways of engaging members of the public with the design, conduct and dissemination of research - with the goal of mutual benefit.
The Business Partnerships Office (BPO) supports the establishment and long-term sustainability of strategic research alliances between industry and academia.
Informal or formal inquiries, in consultation or collaboration, policy engagement enables research and policymaking communities to improve public policy.
Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) in health and social care is research being carried out with members of the public, rather than for them.
