 The Eijkman-Oxford Clinical Research Unit (EOCRU) in Jakarta opened in 2008 with the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology and the University of Oxford, to conduct collaborative research on infectious diseases impacting the health of Indonesians and residents of other Southeast Asian nations. University of Oxford also has a partnership (MoU) with Universitas Indonesia, and they jointly established the Universities of Indonesia and Oxford Clinical Research Laboratory (IOCRL) which is a facility dedicated to supporting collaborative clinical research between the universities.
