Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine

A drone shot of the proposed build of one part of the Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine; a modern cuboid shaped building.

The Ellison Institute is an interdisciplinary, patient-centered research center that provides cutting-edge cancer care and wellness services, undertaking research initiatives that span the scientific spectrum to change how cancer and other diseases are treated.

The Oxford Science Park was created by Magdalen College Oxford in 1991 as part of its mission to support discovery, innovation, and entrepreneurship. It is home to world-class research, engineering, technology, and clinical expertise, and aims to be environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable.

The Ellison Institute acquired the 3.5 acre “Plot 18” from Magdalen College, part of Oxford University, through a 150-year land lease arrangement. The newly purchased property will connect with the adjacent 5.9-acre Littlemore House site that the Ellison Institute acquired late last year.

Direct Access worked with leading architectural firm Foster + Partner to deliver on the new clinic and education facilities, implementing a forward-thinking approach to accessibility fitting of the Institute’s cutting-edge developments in the field of medicinal research. This involved reviewing architectural plans and collaborating with project managers to ensure the site achieves best practice standards of accessibility which would empower disabled people of all backgrounds to have access to the site and be directly involved in the Institute’s vital research into diseases that affect us all, such as cancer.
