About Us

About Us

We deliver excellence in clinical and basic science research.

Our researchers are conducting ground-breaking studies into the causes or cardiovascular problems and appropriate new treatments.

We represent cardiovascular research across Newcastle University and Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Our mission is to enhance the health and wellbeing of patients and the public both here and across the globe.

Research excellence

Our purpose is to deliver outstanding clinical-relevant research. This research is across a range of conditions and involving all ages.

Outstanding clinical care

The Trust has an international reputation for the highest standards of investigation and treatment.

The Supra-Regional Cardiothoracic Centre at Freeman Hospital provides all cardiovascular treatment across all ages.

Clinical care supports our research. In turn, our research drives clinical care.

Award-winning teaching

Together, the Faculty of Medical Sciences and the Trust provide undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. This is for both clinicians and scientists in training.

Cutting-edge Faculty laboratories and clinical trial infrastructure in the cardiothoracic centre underpin this.
