For over 30 years Oxford has been at the forefront of eating disorder research, both nationally and internationally. There have been studies of the development of the various eating disorder; of their course over time, and crucially, studies of their treatment. The leading treatments for adults with an eating disorder have been developed here thanks to a close partnership between the NHS and the University. The research is now focused on how to disseminate these treatments. Large numbers of therapists are being trained remotely via the internet (eTraining) and the treatments themselves are being adapted so that they can be delivered direct to sufferers (eTherapy).
