Joint Research Office

Newcastle Joint Research Office

Newcastle University Medical Sciences, Grants and Contracts Team (Newcastle University) and the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Research and Development Team (Newcastle Hospitals) have merged to form the Newcastle Joint Research Office (NJRO) and is now located on Level 6, Leazes Wing, Royal Victoria Infirmary.

The NJRO, which is led by Amanda Tortice (who is based on Level 3 in the William Leech Building),  supports Newcastle University and Newcastle Hospitals in the development of research bids, negotiation and acceptance of grants and contracts and clinical trials, and also provides advice on adherence to research governance.

The aim is to provide an efficient, effective and streamlined service to support researchers in Newcastle University and the Newcastle Hospitals in securing external research funding whilst still adhering to and protecting Newcastle University and Newcastle Hospitals in their legislative requirements.

For guidance on Newcastle University and Newcastle Hospitals practices, procedures, guidelines and contacts please follow the link to NJRO:
