The NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre – Open Day, 21 April 2016

The NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre held a public open day “Celebrating Medical Research in Oxford” on Thursday 21st April from midday to 5pm at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The event, at Tingewick Hall in the Academic Block, included interactive stands, lectures, debates and tours about the work of the Oxford BRC, which funds medical research across seven areas including cancer, diabetes, stroke and genetics.

We participated with a stand on malaria and typhoid challenge clinical trials, in collaboration with the OVG, with many hands-on props illustrating the clinical and laboratory activites surrounding clinical trials.
