Welcome to the Alzheimer's Research UK Oxford Drug Discovery Institute

The Alzheimer’s Research UK Oxford Drug Discovery Institute couples the deep disease knowledge and biology expertise of the academic community with high quality, innovative drug discovery technologies.

Housed within The Target Discovery Institute, Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford Old Road Campus, the Oxford Drug Discovery Institute is uniting collaborative efforts for target identification with sophisticated target development capabilities. We are looking for academic researchers who have targets and ideas with translational potential, keen to partner with us to fast-track these ideas towards new medicines.

The Oxford Drug Discovery Institute is one of three Institutes within the Alzheimer’s Research UK Drug Discovery Alliance, working alongside Institutes at the University of Cambridge and University College London. The Alliance will accelerate the discovery of novel, effective therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
