During the COVID-19 pandemic the Thames Valley's community of researchers, clinicians, carers and research organisations are pulling together, and pooling their expertise to answer critical questions for health and care professionals.
The NIHR ARC OxTV brings the NHS, social care and research together.
It is the home of collaborative applied health and social care research in Oxford and the Thames Valley.
About the NIHR ARC OxTV
We are a collaboration of health and social care focused organisations (including universities, local NHS trusts, councils and charities) working together in the Oxford and Thames Valley region.
We are hosted by Oxford Health NHS foundation Trust and led from the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.
NIHR's response to COVID-19
"The world faces an unprecedented challenge in our efforts to tackle the spread of COVID-19 and it is vital we harness our research capabilities to the fullest extent to limit the outbreak and protect life."
