As head of the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences and of one of the four Oxford University Hospitals NHS divisions I welcome you to OCIT, our exciting new venture in which we seek to bring world-leading experts in surgery, engineering, physics, robotics and computer science under one roof. My hope is that, through this new institute, Oxford will lead the way in innovative surgical science and deliver ground-breaking advances that will transform patient care. To make this vision a reality we need partners who can support us with both finance and expertise. Please consider whether you might join us in this endeavour.

I would be happy to discuss the detail of the project further with interested individuals and would welcome personal enquiries through my Executive Assistant, Mrs Nicky Iyer (Email:; Tel: +44 1865 617123).
