Gastroenterology and hepatology research ranked in global top 10
The US News Best Global Universities listing has placed Gastroenterology & Hepatology research at Newcastle University as top 10 in its 2022-23 rankings.
Newcastle researchers in Gastroenterology and Hepatology are celebrating being ranked as top 10 in the latest US News Best Global Universities listing, conducted in collaboration with Clarivate. The league table recognises the international excellence of our research outputs, with Gastroenterology & Hepatology ranked #1 in the world for both citation impact and the number of publications in the top-10% most cited. It also represents a third consecutive year-on-year rise in the global rankings for Gastroenterology & Hepatology research.
Quentin Anstee, Professor of Experimental Hepatology and Deputy-Dean of Research & Innovation, commented:
“Newcastle has an international reputation as a centre of research excellence in liver disease. The current global ranking is a reflection of the success of researchers from across our three institutes and the Faculty’s longstanding commitment to translational research in liver disease that directly benefits this underserved patient group”.
The news comes after the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) was awarded £23.1m funding for its world-leading research in ageing and multiple long-term conditions by the Department of Health & Social Care. The investment will support a five-year programme delivered by Newcastle Hospitals, Newcastle University and Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Trust to better understand and treat a range of conditions for patients – including liver disease.
Newcastle BRC’s Liver Disease theme studies a range of liver conditions, in order to find treatments that can improve the quality of life for those diagnosed.
