The NIHR is the nation's largest funder of health and care research and provides the people, facilities and technology that enable research to thrive.
The NIHR Newcastle BRC is focused on improving lives - in the region, the UK and beyond - through world-class research into ageing and long-term conditions.
Our BRC benefits from the skills, resources and infrastructure of this ‘Outstanding’-rated hospital trust, which has provided care to communities in the North East and beyond for over 250 years.
We are part of a world-leading collaboration of research scientists, engineers and clinicians at one of 24 UK Russell Group institutions known for their world-class research.
Our BRC is located on the Campus for Ageing and Vitality, which is a purpose built, multi-use site dedicated to improving health care for older people.
We are England's most Northerly NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and play an important role in the health ecosystem of the city of Newcastle and the wider region.
