Facilities & Equipment

Over the past few years, we have invested heavily in a range of Facilities to support and enhance our own research and that of our commercial partners and customers. 

Specialist support ranges from electron and confocal microscopy and flow cytometry, to bio-informatics and proteomic analysis.

We welcome enquiries from commercial customers and other universities seeking analytical and testing services, and access to our facilities and equipment. Funding may be available to support these projects, please see the Business Voucher Scheme for more information. 

Our Clinical Facilities combine state-of-the-art equipment with staff experienced in all phases of clinical research. They provide support throughout the whole clinical trial process, from trial design through to assessment using MR and PET scanners to patient assessment at one of our three Newcastle-based hospital facilities or our facility at South Tees.

Other Facilities include the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre at the Freeman Hospital; a Dental Clinical Research Facility; and our ‘Biobank’, providing access to clinical samples for research.

You will find information about individual Facilities from the links below or you can contact us for further enquiries.
