Since Charles Daubeny opened his lab at Magdalen in 1848, the college has been at the forefront of scientific discovery.

Established in 1458, Magdalen College(one of the pre-eminent colleges withinthe University of Oxford) has been home to ten Nobel Prize-winners, including five in Medicine. It hosts prestigious University Chairs in Medicine, Chemistry and Botany. And in 1989, it established the Oxford Science Park as a home for research and development into the most cutting-edge sciences. Today, six of the companies basedat the park were founded by academics based at Magdalen College itself.

500+ years of heritage, more than 200 years of scientific innovation.
