About the Institute
The Kennedy Institute is situated at the heart of the University of Oxford’s Old Road campus, a premier site for translational research in Oxford. The Institute houses basic and clinician scientists working in the areas of microbiome, immunology, inflammation and tissue biology and repair. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach, from basic biology, through models of disease to the development and testing of novel therapies in the clinic. There are strong links with clinical centres focussing on joint and bone diseases, inflammatory bowel disease and cancer. The Institute Director is Professor Fiona Powrie FRS.
