The Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) is a large multi-disciplinary department that links high quality clinical research with medical application. The underpinning motivation behind all research carried out by the NDM is the pursuit of academic excellence and the positive impact of research on the health and well-being of the global community.

The Nuffield Department of Medicine is structured around several scientifically autonomous Institutes, Centres and Units, which are supported by a central administrative team, NDM Strategic. The Department operates major research programmes overseas, with research units in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Kenya.

NDM is based across multiple local sites, including the John Radcliffe and Churchill Hospitals, and the University of Oxford’s Old Road Campus – one of the largest centres for biomedical research in Europe. With over £200M invested in capital projects and research infrastructure over the past decade, this rapidly growing campus provides a vibrant, highly interactive environment for research development, and career development for young scientists.

NDM currently employs around 1000 scientific research staff within the UK, and a further 1,500 staff overseas. Our researchers also contribute to the teaching of 450 medical students within Oxford University's Clinical School, further solidifying our bench to bedside philosophy.
