About us

In 2009 we set up the Eye Research Group Oxford (ERGO) with the goal of creating a formal structure for research within the Oxford Eye Hospitals. We have expanded from a team of 2 dedicated researchers to a hub for a talented multidisciplinary team with support from major grant providing bodies, such as the CLRN and NIHR.

Our collaboration with the University of Oxford underpins the quality of our research; we bring innovation from the laboratory bench to the bedside. We also deliver high-quality education and training of doctors to promote the practice of evidence-based medicine within the NHS. Our ambitious research programmes set the standard in translating science and research into new and better NHS clinical care.

Whether you are an ophthalmology researcher, patient or part of the wider community we hope this website will inform you and help to promote our research projects.
