the investigative medicine division (IMD) aims to translate innovative science into patient benefit across a range of specialties.
Research at IMD:
MRC HUMAN IMMUNOLOGY UNIT
At the MRC Human Immunology Unit, we propel the understanding and treatment of immune mediated diseases.
The MRC HIU includes 16 research teams with over 160 scientists who share a common goal - to harness the immune system to enhance human health.
The Laboratory of Cerebral Ischemia is a pre-clinical research group which aims to discover both the mechanisms which underlie cell death in stroke, and to develop novel strategies to reduce this. We work closely with clinical colleagues who treat stroke patients every day, so that our research can directly impact on daily clinical practice of acute stroke treatment, going from bench to bedside.
Human Iron Research at Oxford (HIRO)
Human Iron Research at Oxford (HIRO) is a new initiative linking clinicians and scientists with an interest in iron research, across the oxford campus. It is co-led by Professor Hal Drakesmith at the MRC HIU.
