Units And Clinical Research Facilities
We host two units, spanning basic and clinical research.
The Oxford Acute Multidisciplinary Imaging and Interventional Centre (AMIIC), which opened in 2011 and relaunched in 2022, is a unique facility dedicated to world-leading clinical research in parallel with high-end clinical services. The Centre, led by Professor Charalambos Antoniades, was built and supported by generous donations from the MRC, BHF, Wellcome Trust and DoH. AMIIC comprises of three pillars: (a) Big Data/Artificial Intelligence (b) Advanced photon counting Computed Tomography Imaging (c) Invasive imaging and interventions (interventional suite).
The MRC Human Immunology Unit (HIU), which was founded in 1998, represents one of the central pillars of translational immunology in Oxford, the UK and the World. The Unit is based within the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine and hosts approximately 170 staff and students. The Unit, led by Professor Alison Simmons, aims to foster research in Human Immunology and to apply this knowledge to the development of better treatment strategies against infectious diseases, cancer, allergy and autoimmune disease.
