NIHR Newcastle In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative
Our vision is improving lives through supporting better diagnostic tests for patients and the NHS.
We will catalyse the generation of evidence on new in vitro diagnostics that is required by the NHS with the potential to lead to improvements in healthcare services and the quality of life of patients.
We will provide diagnostics developers with rapidly responsive, effective and independent expertise, while continuing to build academic excellence in the methods used to evaluate diagnostic tests.
We will build on excellence in diagnostic evaluation within three themes defined by huge unmet clinical need:
- Ageing and long-term chronic conditions
- Personalised and stratified medicine
We will expand our strategic partnerships to increase access to companies and enhance the quality of our academic offering.
We are committed to expanding the number of high quality methodologists to meet the rapidly increasing demand for our services and skills.
