Part of the Newcastle Hospitals pharmacy directorate, we work in partnership with Newcastle University to support ‘bench to bedside’ translational research and clinical delivery of cell, gene, and tissue therapies to treat a wide range of patients.
Working to high standards of governance, regulation and operational efficiency, our focus is on maximising patient safety and product quality to enhance the lives of patients in Newcastle and further afield.
Our qualified scientists, quality assurance experts and production specialists have a track record of working with clients and partners across the full advanced therapy development process from early research to production of licensed medicines.
We operate a fully accredited (JACIE) and licensed (MHRA and HTA) GMP cleanroom facility across two sites at the Royal Victoria Infirmary (cell, gene and tissue laboratory) and the International Centre for Life (GMP manufacturing facility).
Our well-established haematology transplant service works in close collaboration with clinical teams and expertise to deliver clinical trials for advance therapy medicinal products (ATMP) in partnership with Newcastle University.
