NIHR Biomedical Research Centre award
Newcastle University and the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have been awarded £21m from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
The funds are neuro focussed and
will be used to continue and expand the world-leading work the partnership achieves in its research into, and treatment of, our ageing population.
The existing Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at the Campus for Ageing and Vitality will receive £16.6m over the next five years – double its current funding. The extra cash will be used to help improve treatments of a broad range of ageing-related disease.
As a result of a successful joint bid by the Trust and the University to the Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley, £4.5m will fund a new Biomedical Research Unit, which will carry out research into dementia, specifically Dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson’s disease with dementia.
