The Institute of Developmental & Regenerative Medicine currently has 7 research groups with 90 biological, clinical and physical scientists operating across the cardiovascular, neuroscience and immunology themes. We seek to expand to a capacity of 15-20 groups and 240 scientists; as such the IDRM represents a major recruitment vehicle in the domains of developmental biology and regenerative medicine, whereby we seek to attract the world’s best to work with us in Oxford.
Our scientists have developed close collaborations with a wide range of researchers across disciplines and in particular are working with neighbouring Institutes on the Old Road campus; most notably the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics; Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology; the Big Data institute and the Target Discovery Institute as well as with industry, via the Novo Nordisk Research Centre Oxford housed in the neighbouring BioEscalator.
The Institute currently has a number of affiliated researchers across University Depts as well as research Institutes. We embrace interactions and collaborations with our affiliates who share common interests in developmental and cell biology with applications in other model systems and disease indications (eg. cancer). In doing so we have established an extensive network of complementary expertise and enabling platforms.
