The final Annual Report of the Oxford Academic Health Science Centre has been submitted to NIHR and NHSE and is published here. Oxford AHSC Report 2014-2020
The Report provides an overview of activities since 2014 and in particular demonstrates the impact of the work of the Partners during the period. Highlights included:
- System leadership – e.g. the designation of two BRCs under the AHSC’s auspices, formation of the Oxford Institute for Nursing Midwifery and Allied Health Research;
- Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence – roll out of Sleepio and the Gestational Diabetes (GDm) App
- Microbiology and Anti-Microbial Resistance – Oxford AHSC researchers have pioneered the use of whole genome sequencing (WGS) to modernise microbiology in the NHS.
- Early, rapid response to COVID-19 pandemic – e.g. RECOVERY and PRINCIPLE trials and the work on the Oxford Vaccine with AstraZeneca
