Course overview

We invite postgraduate research proposals in a number of disease areas that impact significantly on patient care. We focus on exploring the mechanisms of disease, understanding the ways disease impacts patients’ lives, utilising new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and developing new treatments.

As a student in Biomedicine you will be registered with a University research institute, for many this is the Institute for Cellular Medicine (ICM). You will be supported in your studies through a structured programme of supervision and training via our Faculty of Medical Sciences Graduate School.

We undertake the following areas of research and offer MPhil, PhD and MD supervision in: Applied immunobiology (including organ and haematogenous stem cell transplantation)

Dermatology (cell signalling in normal and diseased skin including mechanotransduction and response to ultraviolet radiation; dermatopharmacology including mechanisms of psoriatic plaque resolution in response to therapy; stem cell biology and gene therapy; regulation of apoptosis/autophagy; non-melanoma skin cancer/melanoma biology and therapy)

Diabetes (mechanisms of insulin action and glucose homeostasis; insulin secretion and pancreatic beta-cell function; diabetic complications; stem cell therapies; genetics and epidemiology of diabetes)

Diagnostic and therapeutic technologies (bacterial infection; chronic liver failure; cardiovascular and degenerative diseases)

Kidney disease (haemolytic uraemic syndrome; renal inflammation and fibrosis; the immunology of transplant rejection; tubular disease; cystic kidney disease)

The liver (primary biliary cirrhosis (epidemiology, immunobiology and genetics); alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; fibrosis; the genetics of other autoimmune and viral liver diseases)

Magnetic Resonance (MR), spectroscopy and imaging in clinical research (Our studies cover a broad range of topics (including diabetes, dementia, neuroscience, hepatology, cardiovascular, neuromuscular disease, metabolism, and respiratory research projects), but have a common theme of MR technical development and its application to clinical research.)

Musculoskeletal disease (including auto-immune arthritis) (what causes the destruction of joints (cell signalling, injury and repair); how cells in the joints respond when tissue is lost (cellular interactions); whether we can alter the immune system and ‘switch off’ auto-immune disease (targeted therapies and diagnostics))

Pharmacogenomics (including complex disease genetics)

Reproductive and vascular biology (the regulation of trophoblast and uNk cells; transcriptional and post-translational features of uterine function; cardiac and vascular remodelling in pregnancy)

Respiratory disease (acute lung injury - lung infections; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; fibrotic disease of the lung, both before and after lung transplantation)

Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutics

Newcastle University offers a joint doctoral PhD degree programme in biomedical sciences with the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia (FKUI).

You spend at least one year of your studies in each university and are jointly supervised by staff from Newcastle University and Universitas Indonesia. This leads to a single award from both institutions. The development of the Joint Doctoral PhD programme has been generously supported under the Prime Minister's Initiative 2 Programme and the British Council Indonesia.

Training and Skills

As a research student you will receive a tailored package of academic and support elements to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our Faculty of Medical Sciences Graduate School.
