It was here in Oxford, in the 1600s, that great minds such as Hooke, Boyle, Willis and Wren laid the foundations of modern experimental science.
Like their famous forebears, today's Oxford scientists continue to undertake world-leading research: making fundamental new discoveries and applying cutting-edge knowledge to the major societal challenges of the day; developing new energy solutions or improved cancer treatments; understanding climate change processes and preserving biodiversity.
We have a strong tradition of innovation, and collaborate widely - with universities worldwide, and with business and industry. And with its unparalleled tutorial system, Oxford is also an outstanding place to study science.
