We provide a number of studentships for clinical and non-clinical PhD projects with the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).
The NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is the only one of 20 BRCs across England that is dedicated to the study of ageing and multiple long-term conditions (MLTC) across eight key research areas.
Our experimental medicine and translational research turns innovative ideas and discoveries into practical benefits for patients and the NHS, as well as contributing to the local and national economy.
We are a partnership between Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Cumbria, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, and Newcastle University, funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research.
Our research themes bring together a dynamic team of internationally recognised researchers, in the areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact on improving people’s health.
