Cardiovascular Research Centre

About Us

About Us

Delivering excellence across clinical and basic science research.

Our researchers are conducting ground-breaking studies into the causes or cardiovascular problems and appropriate new treatments.

We are the cardiovascular researchers at Newcastle University and Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Our mission is to deliver strategies to promote cardiovascular resilience with ageing.

We are looking for ways to prevent or treat a range of cardiovascular diseases to keep our population in good health as they grow older. By connecting our Newcastle cardiovascular teams with internationally recognised experts in other research areas we are working to impact on heart failure, a shared late-complication of patients with congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathy.


Research excellence

Our purpose is to deliver outstanding clinical-relevant research - across a range of serious conditions and involving all ages.

Our research is directly linked to clinical care. We are finding the answers to questions that matter to patients and families

Outstanding clinical care

Our hospitals have an international reputation for delivering the highest standards of investigation and treatment.

The Cardiothoracic Centre at Freeman Hospital is unique in providing all cardiovascular treatment options across all ages.

Award-winning teaching

We actively nurture basic scientists and clinicians at all stages of their training and bring them together for post graduate study on our Masters in Cardiovascular Sciences course.

The annual CVRC  trainees conference is a full day of student and junior doctor presentations.

This years meeting was held on Wednesday 13th June at Newcastle University Medical School.
