Primary Care and Vaccines Collaborative Clinical Trials Unit

is a consortium of individually accredited research units at the University of Oxford who carry out high-quality, academically-led trials and translational research. We work closely with Oxford University Hospitals, and collaborate across the UK and the rest of the world. 

We perform trials across a wide range of therapeutic areas, whilst fostering a joined-up approach to our use of resources and expertise, resulting in synergies that allow us to conduct efficient yet focussed research. Please explore this site to learn more about our research and how you can work with us.
