Since 2009, Oxford Academic Health Science Centre partners have worked to create an integrated and coordinated health research environment in Oxford, recognising that this was essential to achieve the common goal of translating excellent research into application in healthcare.
This relationship was formalised in 2013 when the Oxford AHSC was designated as an AHSC on a five-year licence. View our application to become an AHSC (pdf; 1 MB).
There are five other AHSCs across the country – three in London and one each in Cambridge and Manchester.
The Oxford AHSC works in partnership with the Oxford Academic Health Science Network (Oxford AHSN) which provides links into a wider regional health system.
