Paul O’Gorman Building, Northern Institute for Cancer Research, Newcastle

Paul O’Gorman Building, Northern Institute for Cancer Research, Newcastle
Opened in 2004
Childhood cancer is a major research theme at the Institute which has become the hub for the University’s world-class capability in cancer research since opening in 2004.

We contributed £2 million towards the costs of building and equipping the Northern Institute for Cancer Research, housed in the award-winning Paul O’Gorman Building.

More than 160 staff and students are engaged in conducting and supporting research at the Institute. Working at the clinical-laboratory interface, they undertake basic research to define new targets for therapeutic and diagnostic exploitation, pre-clinical drug development to identify new agents for studies in patients and clinical trials.

We have funded two important research projects in the Institute since its opening and will continue working with the teams there, so that our research can benefit from the superb facilities.
