We carry out world-class research to advance understanding of disease and improve patient care.

We work across many locations across the University Medical School. We currently have more than 270 staff. These include:

  • 80 academic members
  • 116 researchers

More than half of our academic staff are clinicians. We have close working relationships with a large cohort of patients and the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

We have access to facilities such as the Institute of Transplantation at the Freeman Hospital. 

This is a unique facility providing renal, whole pancreas/islet cell, liver, heart and lung transplantation within a single integrated unit. 

Research

Our focus is on cutting edge medical research areas which explore:

  • the basis of disease
  • development of new methods for diagnosis and treatment
  • deriving new treatments and assess their impacts in practice

Funding

In the past three years, we have received more than £38m in research funding from:

  • research councils
  • charities
  • government
  • the European Union

Teaching

We contribute to Newcastle University's undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. We offer a stimulating environment for postgraduate research in fundamental science and translational medicine.

We offer outreach and work experience to the next generation of scientists and clinicians.

We provide excellent facilities and environment for research. We are working towards achieving equality in career progression. We achieved Athena SWAN Silver status in April 2013.
