Newcastle Health Innovation Partners go #Red4Research

Today (16 June 2023) marks #Red4Research day, bringing together all those involved, undertaking, and supporting research.

Newcastle Health Innovation Partners (NHIP) works collaboratively to translate world-class research and innovation into real world benefit, so raising awareness for all those contributing to research with #Red4Research is crucial.

To signify our support, key individuals from across our partner organisations have come together by wearing #Red4Research to celebrate the incredible work that takes place all year round to advance healthcare.

Newcastle is a centre of research excellence, so to symbolise the importance of research and raise awareness within the city, Newcastle Civic Centre and Newcastle Tyne Bridge will be lit up in red.

Ensuring the right people get into research is of huge importance to NHIP for the benefit of our area. Through NHIP Academy, we support the next generation of researchers and academic leaders in health and care to access career development opportunities. The Academy operates across the spectrum of health and care research and at all stages from pre-doctoral onwards.

Hannah Powell, Chief Operating Officer of NHIP, said: “Research is fundamental for us to provide the best possible care for patients and services for the public. Without research, we would never discover innovative advancements and solutions to improve the health care system. #Red4Research is the perfect opportunity to showcase how much we appreciate those who are involved in research across our partnership.”

Professor David Burn, Director of NHIP added: “Research plays an integral part of practice, it is the only way to continue to break through current limitations and ensure that the people of our area are receiving the best possible services. We must prioritise research so that we can discover, develop and deliver solutions to benefit our population in the future.”
