Science in Oxfordshire: Celebrating local research

Boyden uses acid to peel an egg

All this year BBC Oxford will be reflecting the people and places making Oxfordshire an internationally renowned location for scientific research.

The county already employs 13,000 people who work in science and another 10,000 jobs are planned.

There have been over 20 Nobel Prize winners who have all studied at Oxford.

Its current professor for the Public Understanding of Science, Marcus du Sautoy, said; "It's really one of the leading places in the world."

So across the year we will have stories on our radio, TV and online services unearthing the incredible work going on in our back garden.
