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 large facilities such as electron and confocal microscopy and flow cytometry to access to techniques such as bio-informatics and proteomic analysis.

Enquiries to access to our facilities and equipment, along with analytical and testing services, are welcomed from commercial customers and other universities.  Funding may be available to support these projects, please see the Business Voucher Scheme for more information. 

Our Clinical Research Platforms combine state-of-the-art facilities 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.

New facilities added in the past year include the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre at the Freeman Hospital; a new 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.
