Who we are

The NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) brings together the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Newcastle Hospitals), one of the largest and most successful teaching hospitals in England and twice rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC, and the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University, which has a well-established, international reputation for multi-disciplinary research into the area of Ageing and Health.

We are one of 20 BRCs across England awarded major funding from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to bring together academics and clinicians to translate lab-based scientific breakthroughs into potential new treatments, diagnostics and medical technologies.

The NIHR Newcastle BRC is the only one in the country dedicated to the study of ageing and long-term conditions, improving the lives of people here in the North East, across the UK and beyond.
