Oxford Medicine

Oxford has been responsible for some of the world’s most important medical breakthroughs, including the development of penicillin, the confirmation of the link between smoking and cancer, and the discovery of cell fusion which enabled the mass production of antibodies.

Today, the pursuit of scientific discoveries and their rapid translation into life-saving treatments remain the twin aims of our medical research. Medical education is equally important if we are to train the next generation of world-leading scientists and medical professionals. We aim to recruit the most talented students from around the world, whatever their financial circumstances.

We are seeking support to help carry on this vital work. This is increasingly necessary in today’s volatile funding environment. Any money you give will enable us to support academic posts and research, provide more graduate studentships, and build the very best facilities. Please give generously and help us make a difference.
