Building on excellent science, our research and innovation will translate discovery into real world benefit. Reducing inequalities and improving health outcomes for patients and citizens across the region. The benefits of our work will impact nationally and internationally.

Our foundations are built on four Research domains, which coalesce areas of academic and clinical excellence and emerging areas of research.  The latter will form the basis for Research Satellites:


NHIP Translational Research Strengths

The NHIP Translation Pipeline

The NHIP Translation Pipeline identifies the regional infrastructure in place to support the innovation commercialisation process. Regional partners work collaboratively to identify, evaluate, adopt and spread innovations to improve health outcomes and economic growth.

As well as the Partners, the NHIP collaborates with the regional NHIR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) to address inequalities and improve health, social care outcomes and economic growth. This is achieved through the support for high quality research and evaluation of local priority issues affecting the North East and North Cumbia.

The ARC, hosted by CNTW, underpins the delivery of the NIHP 2025 Strategy to achieve ‘Better, fairer health and care at all ages and in all places’ and drive rapid adoption of innovation into practice.

The ARC with £9m of NHIR funding, is a good illustration of the connectivity from world class science in Academic Health Science Centres and adoption and spread through the Academic Health Science Network and into the social care and voluntary sector, recognising that Newcastle City Council is a NHIP Partner.

The NHIP has a flexible and dynamic structure to respond to emerging opportunities that advance our strategy. In our Research Satellites there are a number of work streams that may expand these clusters in the future.

Our clusters connect with Newcastle University Centres of Research Excellence (NUCoRE) and include:

  • Centre for Cancer
  • Centre for Healthier Lives
  • Centre for Rare Diseases

and emerging areas of excellence in:

  • Centre for Ageing Inequalities
  • Centre for Cities
