Northumbria’s vision is to ‘Take on Tomorrow’ through its rich body of world-leading research and the inspirational teaching which this research powers. The academics at Northumbria are leading the way in tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges across health, social care, science, and culture.
Examples of the thought-provoking and highly impactful research projects undertaken at the university include:
Dr Sterghios Moschos’ breakthrough in the fight against Ebola. His development of rapid, mass screening means patients can be treated sooner, reducing the spread and severity of the disease.
A joint UK-US research project to determine how changes in the Thwaites Glacier will affect global sea levels. This research, involving a number of Northumbria’s academics, could have a major impact on the survival of cities such as Miami, London, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
Assisting with building of the £220 million DKIST telescope, the largest telescope in the world.
Developing a new, faster, and cheaper NTM diagnostic procedure, leading to vast improvements in the treatment of lung infections in cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis sufferers. This development was labelled as “paradigm-shifting”.
Co-developing an award-winning mobile game that tests for a decline in spatial awareness and navigation, early signs of dementia. The research is said to have had a significant impact on public awareness of dementia.
Northumbria’s researchers are also involved in two of 12 new Global Research Hubs – the Living Deltas Hub and the Urban Disaster Risk Hub – which have been set up with the world’s leading academics, governments and NGOs.
