"Newcastle University's Faculty of Medical Sciences is at the forefront of the Translational Medicine revolution.

Its principal aim is to translate scientific advances into direct benefits for patients being treated in our partner NHS Trusts.

This strategy has already led to major advances in the healthcare of patients within the region, as well as nationally and internationally."
