Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences Research Centre



We frequently work with non-academic stakeholders, including practitioners, professionals and third sector organisations.

Our partnerships are genuinely collaborative. We make use of co-inquiry or co-production techniques in project development and design to make sure that all those involved can fully participate in all stages of the project to:

  • identify research questions
  • contribute to research design and development
  • pursue routes for disseminating diverse and marginalised perspectives to a range of audiences

Local health, educational and outreach institutions

We also have long-established working relationships with local health, educational and outreach institutions. We provide research ethics advice, develop joint research collaborations, and enable new opportunities for debate and dialogue.

These institutions include:

  • Newcastle Centre for Life
  • Northern Genetics Service
  • Institute of Medical Genetics
  • Institute for Ageing Research
  • Newcastle Fertility Centre
  • Northeast Stem Cell Institute
