Newcastle Magnetic Resonance Centre


About Us

The mission of the Centre is to develop and apply novel, non-invasive magnetic resonance methodology to solve important problems of human health.

With more than 900m2 of laboratory space, the Centre is equipped with a high field strength magnetic resonance scanner and full facilities for clinical MR research and associated technical developments.

The Centre opened in 2006 on the Campus for Ageing and Vitality, situated on the site of the old Newcastle General Hospital site. We operate in conjunction with Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust for all clinical research work and is part of the Centre for In Vivo Imaging.

It represents an investment of more than £4.9million with capital funding coming from many sources including:

  • One North East
  • the Northern Rock Foundation
  • Newcastle Healthcare Charity
  • the Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust
  • the Barclay Foundation
  • Newcastle University
  • private donations
