The long-standing dream of using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to build an artificial brain has taken a significant step forward, as a team led by Professor Newton Howard from the University of Oxford has successfully prototyped a nanoscale, AI-powered, artificial brain in the form factor of a high-bandwidth neural implant.
Our research aims to understand the contribution of insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) to cancer biology and use this information to benefit patients with cancer.
ORPHIC - Oxford Research in Plastic surgery and Hand surgery Innovation Collaboration aims to research innovative aspects of plastic and hand surgery in collaboration with other groups.
We are conducting a randomised trial of a treatment for severe foot pain due to diabetes, using an implanted nerve stimulator system.
NDS is part of the Oxford University Global Surgery Group, an interdepartmental group of the Medical Sciences Division for clinicians in surgery, anaesthesia, obstetrics and gynaecology with an interest in global surgical issues.
We aim to embed the role of pathology across all research for the benefit of patients and to bring about improvements in the quality of reseach. Our team have interests in a wide range of projects including in digital pathology and image analysis, and multimodal and molecular pathology. Our group also includes Oxford Biocore, the recently formed NDS Tissue Handling Platform.
Oxford Medical CE marking Forum aims to to serve as a knowledge exchange portal for interested academic and industry partners within Oxford.

The Centre for Evidence in Transplantation (CET) was established at the beginning of 2005 by Professor Sir Peter Morris with the aim of providing a source of high quality evidence based information on all aspects of solid organ transplantation.
This is one of few academic paediatric surgical units in the United Kingdom, and seeks to successfully translate basic science and clinical research from laboratory bench to patient bedside. The principal emphases of the unit are the endocrine and exocrine pancreas, developmental anomalies of the gut, and evidence-based paediatric surgery.
Our work focuses on the nature of thought, consciousness and cognition. We examine brain structure and operation, specifically of neuronal and cortical mechanisms, to determine and model the underlying physiological process of perception, decision making and language.
While ordinary ultrasound is well known for its diagnostic use, high intensity focused ultrasound can be used to destroy tissue, including cancers.
An aneurysm is present when an artery expands and becomes a "balloon" like structure. When left untreated, large aneurysms can burst suddenly and result in acute internal bleeding and subsequent mortality.
Aims to evaluate the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and acceptability of treatments for men with localised prostate cancer in a pragmatic randomised controlled trial [RCT].
The Quality in Organ Donation (QUOD) initiative aims to identify pathways of injury and repair in donors organs.
We investigate the management of prostate and bladder cancer, research into molecular mechanisms of cancer progression and biomarker research.
We are working on improving preservation and reconditioning strategies for kidney and liver organs procured for transplantation.
One of only 7 Royal College of Surgeons specialist trial centres across the whole of the UK, SITU is a collaboration between the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) and the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS). We have an extensive portfolio of surgical trials and welcome expressions of interest from potential new researchers.
