Funding for Oxford's coronavirus research is crucial to the development of a vaccine.

Scientific research forms a vital part of developing and enhancing innovative treatments for better health. At the Department of Psychiatry we make major advances in scientific knowledge and translate them into benefits for patients.

The coronavirus pandemic is a challenging time for us all, not least for those affected by the illness itself, and the amazing healthcare professionals supporting them.

Funding for Oxford's coronavirus research is crucial to the development of a vaccine and the subsequent delivery of effective drugs to combat this new virus. Unprecedented speed, scope and ambition is required. 

Please make a gift. Any gift made will help contribute to the fight against coronavirus.
