Oxford University Clinical Research Unit



The Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU)  

is a large-scale clinical and public health research unit  hosted  by the Hospital of Tropical Diseases (HTD) in Ho Chi Minh City. OUCRU  has received considerable support from the Wellcome Trust since its establishment in 1991.

Research covers immunology, host and pathogen genetics, molecular biology, virology, mathematical modelling, bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology.

OUCRU is one of the  institutions for the South East Asia Pig and Poultry Partnership which includes  Prof Duncan Maskell of Cambridge University.

This  Centre is funded by the Wellcome Trust. In close collaboration with The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, it supports researchers working in public health and tropical medicine to develop their careers, and foster interchange between institutions in the UK and those based in low- and middle-income countries.
