For Companies

We work with a wide range of partners in both the public and private sectors. We're keen to hear from other potential collaborators.

A strong track record of partnering with industry

We offer expertise in a broad range of rare conditions, spanning the R&D pipeline.

We are in partnership with the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Trust. Through this we provide dedicated local and national clinical services.

We currently work with over 30 industrial partners across the world. Our researchers have attracted over £10 million in private funding. This goes to a broad range of activities, including:

  • disease characterisation
  • biomarker discovery
  • Next Generation Sequencing initiatives
  • therapy development
  • clinical trials
  • repurposing of medicines
  • funding educational and training events for patients and professionals
  • conducting feasibility assessments for future trials based upon robust longitudinal registries
