The Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences is the academic department of surgery at the University of Oxford, and hosts a multidisciplinary team of senior clinical academic surgeons, senior scientists, junior clinicians and scientists in training.
We aim to identify the mechanisms contributing to bone disease caused by cancer and develop new treatments for these conditions.
The Cancer Research UK funded Tumour Evolution and Cell Identity Laboratory study the intersection between intestinal cancer evolution and stem cell biology.
RESPOND is a five-year research programme that aims to use Human Factors techniques (in particular Safety II) to improve rescue for emergency surgery patients who develop complications or deteriorate under surgical care. It is focused on emergency laparotomy and acute abdominal conditions.
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.
Here at the DRWF Human Islet Isolation Facility we isolate high quality human islets for both clinical and research use
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, cell transplantation, 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].
