Executive Leadership

Claire Bloomfield

Dr Claire Bloomfield


LinkedIn profile

Claire is a senior research management professional, with experience of working both directly as an academic researcher and also a senior research

She obtained her Doctorate in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, and held research fellowships in Oxford and the United States before moving into a career as a research management professional. Claire then worked for the UK Medical Research Council, before returning to the University of Oxford, to establish the CRUK Oxford Centre. The Centre was a new type of entity for the University, being a virtual centre with the mission to facilitate research across a variety of disciplines and different Departmental structures to enhance cancer research activity at the University and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Claire delivered a range of high-profile multidisciplinary and pan-Divisional grant initiatives for the University (with a combined value of over £250m), and most recently was focused on early detection for cancer and the use of AI for health care.

Jim Davies

CTO Jim Davies

Lead Data Scientist

Jim Davies is Professor of Software Engineering and Director of the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Health Data Science.  He is leading the development of data standards and infrastructure for clinical and laboratory data across a network of NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs), as part of the NIHR Health Informatics Collaborative.  

His research is focussed upon the development of new model- and metadata-driven techniques for big data engineering: techniques that support the automatic generation and configuration of software, and the automatic management and processing of data, based upon precise, abstract descriptions of structure, process, and intended interpretation.   This work has been informed by practical, large-scale application in clinical research, healthcare delivery, and electronic governance.
