Research and Clinical Trials

As part of our quest to be a world-leading centre in translational medicine, we've established a research office to facilitate bench to bedside research.

The Newcastle Joint Research Office (NJRO) provides important links between Newcastle University and our NHS partners in facilitating bench to bedside research.

NJRO will help you through the process whether it's clinical research, laboratory based research or a combination of the two.

We aim to link the University’s Research Institutes with the Directorates within the North East NHS Trusts, as well as utilising the skills and expertise of the staff in the clinical and scientific facilities.

Once a researcher has had an idea the NJRO can use their established network to offer support throughout the study lifecycle, from identifying funding sources, assisting investigators in designing their protocol through to its implementation and publication.

We welcome enquiries from commercial customers interested in carrying out research and clinical trials with Newcastle University. These customers may be eligible for support from the Business Voucher Scheme
