Our Research

We aim to foster high-quality research in many disease areas that impact on patient care. We pursue answers to a diverse range of research questions through cross-disciplinary groups.

Our research covers:

  • fundamental science exploring mechanisms of disease
  • understanding ways disease impacts on patients' lives
  • utilising new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques
  • developing new treatments to improve patients' lives

We are developing:

  • new and improved drugs and therapies
  • diagnostic and therapeutic technologies
  • physiological interventions
  • pathways for delivery of clinical care in practice 


Our links

Much of our research is supported by the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre  which aims to meet the growing needs of the older population through world-class research in ageing and long-term conditions.

We have strong links to clinical activities in Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This is our partner organisation for translational research.  

We strive to improve patient and public involvement in both research and healthcare delivery. We also want to improve patient and public understanding and awareness of disease.
