UCL Translational Research Office

Ignite summit

The UCL Translational Research Office (TRO) builds on an increasingly vibrant translational culture across UCL and facilitates the translation of UCL's basic and clinical research into therapies, techniques and medical products of therapeutic value by providing integrated support for translational research, industrial partnerships and drug discovery.

Ignite is a summit with a difference. By bringing together leaders in medical innovation to challenge each other, learn from other sectors and develop new ways of thinking and working, we will change the future of medical innovation and accelerate progress.

UCL Research Domains

Oxford BRC
The UCL Research Domains are large, cross-disciplinary research communities that span UCL and our partner organisations, fostering interaction and collaboration. We believe that by bringing together a critical mass of expertise we can undertake internationally leading research in our key areas of strength.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is based at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and run in partnership with the University of Oxford.

The NIHR is the nation's largest funder of health and care research. The NIHR was established in 2006 to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research, and is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care.
