Cancer Research Funding
With the help of the Medical Research Council’s Development Pathway Funding Scheme (DPFS), a team at the Northern Institute for Cancer Research believes it is on course to develop a life-saving treatment.
As part of the Medical Faculty’s quest to be a world leading centre in translational medicine, the Newcastle Joint Research Office (NJRO) has been established to provide important links between Newcastle University and our NHS partners by facilitating bench to bedside research. NJRO will help you through the process whether it is clinical research, laboratory based research or a combination of the two.
We aim to link the University’s Research Institutes with the Directorates within the Trust, as well as utilising the skills and expertise of the staff in the research platforms.
Once a researcher has had an idea the NJRO can use their established network to offer support throughout the study lifecycle, from identifying funding sources, assisting investigators in designing their protocol through to its implementation and publication.
Enquiries from commercial customers interested in carrying out research and clinical trials with Newcastle University are welcomed, and may be eligible for support from the Business Voucher Scheme.
