The NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a partnership between the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University, where we work with Patient and Public Involvement to translate scientific research into direct benefits for patients.

Research and development in Newcastle Hospitals

Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals have a worldwide reputation for the quality of healthcare, as well as the quality of their research.

Ongoing research is aimed at helping patients benefit from potentially life-saving treatments in the future, as well as having positive effects for patients now. Evidence shows that patients do better in hospitals that carry out research – even if they don’t actually take part in a study themselves.

Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals commitment to research keeps them at the forefront of healthcare and allows the Trust to offer the very best services for patients.

Research at Newcastle University

The Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University is committed to carrying out cutting-edge research in a range of medical areas.

Their strategy is to support strong basic science that translates to clinical research for the benefit of patients, by encouraging collaborative working between scientists and clinicians across disciplines and specialties. A key example of this is the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre
