Vice-Chancellor Professor Irene Tracey, 2023

A renowned neuroscientist, Professor Tracey led Merton College as Warden from 2019 up until her appointment as Vice-Chancellor. She was Professor of Anaesthetic Neuroscience in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, a department she led for several years whilst holding a Statutory Chair. She is also President of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS). Professor Tracey’s research on the neuroscience of pain has contributed to a better understanding of pain perception and the representation of pain in the brain. In 2022, she was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to Medical Research by the late Queen Elizabeth II in 2022.

The Vice-Chancellor is Oxford University’s senior officer, responsible for the strategic direction and leadership of the world’s top-ranked university. Professor Tracey is the second woman to hold the post of Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, after her immediate predecessor Professor Dame Louise Richardson.
