Successful 2012 Oxford Biomedical Research Centre Open Day


Several groups within the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Diabetes Theme took part in this year's public open day which was held on the 14th March in the Churchill Hospital.

This third annual event was filled with enthusiastic patients, members of the public and healthcare professionals all there to learn more about local science and medicine.

Tucked in amongst stands focusing on many subjects, from retinal implants and meningococcal vaccines to clinical trials in cancer, there was a steady stream of people to our busy diabetes corner, all interested in hearing more about new developments.

Professor Rury Holman, the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre Diabetes Theme leader said, "It is wonderful to see so many people here taking their time to walk around the exhibitions and to learn about the pioneering work that Oxford is undertaking in diabetes".
