Equipoise – clinicians’ involvement in medical research

Oxford University Hospitals supports high quality research within world class facilities and our specialist Research and Development team can help progress studies quickly and efficiently. Our Joint Research Office brings together all aspects of research governance, finance, contract and support services, spanning both Oxford University Hospitals and the University of Oxford. The Research Governance Team supports and advises researchers in meeting the requirements of local and UK regulatory frameworks. The Finance Team offers advice and support in costing studies and has a role in managing accounts for commercial and non-commercial trials. Contracts are negotiated with external organisations for commercial and non-commercial trials. The team also has an ongoing monitoring responsibility for clinical trials and other studies sponsored by Oxford University Hospitals and for audit of research hosted by the Trust.
