The University of Oxford is committed to identifying and finding solutions to health challenges across the globe. A cross-disciplinary approach brings together researchers from all over the University to identify multi-faceted solutions to global health issues.

We bring together topics such as climate and health, society and health, ethics of health research, historical research and much more. Here are some examples of our integrative work:

The Ethox Centre is a multidisciplinary bioethics research centre that aims to improve ethical standards in healthcare practice and in medical research and provides ethics support and advice to health professionals, medical researchers, and policy makers. Their Global Health Bioethics Network has worked with all five of the Wellcome overseas centres for more than a decade.

Our Medical Humanities programme uses ideas, tools and methods from disciplines such as history, art, philosophy, anthropology, theology and literature to help create innovative strategies for understanding and improving health and healthcare. Drawing on sources that typically cut across and complement prevailing modes of health-related thinking, the field seeks to explore the social and cultural context surrounding the purposes and challenges of medicine and healthcare.

The Oxford Martin School brings together scientists from across the University to examine global issues such as deep medicine, global epilepsy, pandemic genomics and even 3D printing for brain repair.

The Leverhulme Center for Demographic Science (LCDS) is the nucleus of demography to develop new ideas within academia, industry and governments.
