Over the past few years, we've invested heavily in a range of facilities to support and enhance our own research and that of our commercial partners and customers. Our specialist support ranges from electron and confocal microscopy and flow cytometry, to bioinformatics, proteomic analysis and our new genomics core facility.
Staff in our clinical facilities are experienced in all phases of clinical research. They provide support throughout the whole clinical trial process, from trial design through 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.
