Về chúng tôi

Đơn Vị Nghiên Cứu Lâm Sàng Đại Học Oxford (OUCRU) là một đơn vị nghiên cứu lâm sàng và sức khỏe cộng đồng với quy mô lớn có trụ sở tại Việt Nam. Chúng tôi được bảo trợ bởi Bệnh viện Bệnh Nhiệt Đới, Thành Phố Hồ Chí Minh và Bệnh viện Bệnh Nhiệt Đới Trung Ương, Hà Nội. Chúng tôi cũng có các chi nhánh nghiên cứu nhỏ khác tại Kathmandu và Jakarta. OUCRU là một Chương trình nghiên cứu trogn điểm ở nước ngoài của Tổ chức Wellcome Trust nên đơn vị đã nhận được sự hỗ trợ đáng kể từ tổ chức này kể từ khi thành lập vào năm 1991.

Our research covers immunology, host and pathogen genetics, molecular biology, virology, mathematical modelling, bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology. This work is all supported by an extensive Clinical Trials Unit and Data Management Centre compliant with national and international regulations and a comprehensive Management, Finance and Administrative Centre. We concentrate on the following core research areas and cross cutting themes:

  • Antimicrobial Resistance
  • CNS and HIV Infections
  • Dengue
  • Emerging Infections
  • Enteric Infections
  • Malaria
  • Mathematical Modelling, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics
  • Microbiology
  • Clinical Pharmacology
  • Tuberculosis
  • Zoonosis

OUCRU enjoys the support of the Vietnamese government, and we work closely with the Ministry of Health Viet Nam and the Department of Health of Ho Chi Minh City. We have developed strong links with more than 20 Vietnamese hospitals and research institutions including HTD, NHTD, The National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE), and Hanoi Medical University.

Together with our partners, we have led a highly successful effort in enhancing the infrastructure and capacity to perform clinical trials and basic scientific research in Viet Nam, as well as in other parts of South and Southeast Asia. Our researchers collaborate widely across Viet Nam and also with research groups throughout the rest of Asia. In particular we have helped establish the Eijkman-Oxford Clinical Research Unit in Jakarta, Indonesia; the Patan-Oxford Clinical Research Unit in Kathmandu, Nepal; and the Shantou-Oxford Clinical Research Unit in Shantou, China.

We aim to have a positive and significant impact on global health and, in particular, the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. This is being achieved via an integrated long-term research programme, contributions to training, the scientific literature, national and international meetings and membership of national and international committees. Priority is given to health issues important to the hospitals, and to Viet Nam as a whole. All work is intended not only to benefit the patients seen daily at our host hospitals, but also to help improve patient care throughout Viet Nam and the region.
