Welcome to the website of the Oxford University Gene Medicine Research Group. We are a University of Oxford research group based in the Radcliffe Department of Medicine at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
Our work is primarily focused on the development of a clinical gene therapy for the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) lung disease.
Together with colleagues at the University of Edinburgh and Imperial College London we form the UK Cystic Fibrosis Gene Therapy Consortium. The Consortium is funded solely by the Medical Research Council and the National Institute for Health Research.
The Consortium is currently undertaking one of the world's largest ever gene therapy clinical trials in CF patients, based on the research that the three sites have conducted over the past six years.
We are pleased to announce the launch of new charity Just Gene Therapy with the specific aim of raising funds for gene therapy research for CF. The charity has been established by Rosie Barnes in conjunction with Professor Eric Alton, and is the only way in which donations can directly support the work of the Consortium.
