On 1 October 2019, the University of Oxford and the University of British Columbia (UBC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding, committing to work together to develop a new generation of clinical research leaders who will transform the translation of novel therapies from laboratory to clinic.

As part of this initiative, UBC has created the Sultan Karim Fellowships in Clinical Pharmacology, which will support up to four clinicians seeking further research training and education in Clinical Pharmacology. This follows the establishment in 2017 of the Climax Chair of Clinical Therapeutics and Fellowships at St Hilda’s College. The Sultan Karim Fellowships and the Climax Chair and Fellowships have all been created thanks to the vision of Professor John Climax, an early champion of the field of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
