Research in our Department focuses on a wide variety of aspect of children's health. We study the neuroscience of pain in infants, HIV, immunology, haematology, gastroenterology and vaccinology.
The Department of Paediatrics is involved in medical sciences teaching in Paediatrics for Undergraduate students of the University of Oxford Medical School, as well as running a number of Postgraduate programmes.
The research in our Department affects many children and their parents. Here you can find out what we do to reach out, from events that we have organised in the past to information about patient involvement schemes.
