Staff Profile

Dr Emma Campbell

Research Funding Development Manager


Research Funding Development Manager – Early Translational Research

I am the Research Funding DeveIopment Manager for the Newcastle Wellcome Trust Translational Partnership (NWTTP), which aims to increase Newcastle University’s translational activity by providing researchers with mentorship, support and expertise, to advance scientific discoveries towards real world impact. I provide guidance for researchers in the development of projects and funding applications to move ideas and solutions a step nearer to the clinical environment and/or commercial use. 

I am based in the Newcastle Joint Research Office and work across the three faculties of the University. If you are interested in beginning the translation of your research out of the lab and would like guidance as to how to develop your project or funding application, please get in touch.


I am a Newcastle University graduate having completed both my undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications here. Upon completion of my PhD, I worked in a variety of roles in industry before joining Durham University’s Research and Innovation Services, initially in Research Grants and Contracts and then Research Funding Development.
