Introduction to our Department
We are a clinical Department within the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) of the University of Oxford. The Department houses the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA, a multimodal neuroimaging centre) and is located in a number of linked buildings on the Warneford Hospital site. We maintain collaborative links with our NHS partners, solidified by the award in 2016 of the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).
The Department has a devolved management structure, organised around research teams led by different Principal Investigators. We have 32 research groups organised around various themes. You can read about our research activities online and in our annual report. We have grown substantially in the last decade (from 130 staff and annual turnover of £9 million in 2010, to 240 staff and a turnover of £21 million in 2019) and are doing our best to continue to support and engage our growing staff body.
