Research from the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) was submitted to the Clinical Medicine Unit of Assessment (UOA1), along with neuroscience research in UOA4.
In UOA1, 59% of Oxford’s submission was judged to be 4* (the highest score available, for research quality that is world-leading in terms of originality, significance, and rigour).
Professor Freddie Hamdy, Head of Department, said:
'The REF results reflect all of the hard work and commitment shown by everyone in the department to our research activities. I would like to thank the NDS REF Coordinators (Ian Mills and Peter Friend), Jo Snoeck, and Monica Dolton who helped prepare the University’s REF impact case studies during a secondment, the PI’s for reviewing all the outputs, all the research support staff and PA’s who have helped the academics.'
