Dan Richards-Doran

BSc (Hons) DipSciComm MCIPR

Senior Communications Manager

In the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences I lead the development and operationalisation of the department's internal and external communications, supporting researchers to communicate their work and its impact to our local, national and international stakeholders. I also provide managerial support to NIHR communications leads based in the department.

I manage activities that seek to develop our audiences and engage them with our research and professional development programmes, as well as delivering communications support and training to our research team. I work closely with the Public Affairs Directorate, the Medical Sciences Division office and other communications staff across the University of Oxford and Oxford's health research organisations.

I have worked in science communication and public engagement for over 13 years. Before coming to Oxford in May 2014, I worked for RCUK's National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research managing press, communications and public engagement, and at the British Science Association, where I managed National Science & Engineering Week and the regional programme of public events led by over 300 volunteers. I also have commercial experience in the medical publishing and conferences sector.

I have a BSc in medical microbiology and a postgraduate diploma in science communication. I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, an Accredited PR Practitioner and am currently studying for a diploma in public relations.
