Paul O'Gorman Building, Newcastle University


The Paul O'Gorman Building at Newcastle University houses laboratories and staff of the Northern Institute for Cancer Research (NICR). The purpose built research building was completed in 2004 and officially opened on the 21st of February, 2005, by the late Sir Bobby Robson. The £10m building was funded by Cancer Research UK, the Strategic Research Initiative and Children with Cancer UK. The building is named in memory of Paul O'Gorman, who died from leukaemia at the age of 15.

The NICR was founded in 2001, bringing together a range of research groups and disciplines from across the Medical School and wider University & NHS. The NICR has around 200 research and clinical staff. In 2009, the Institute was awarded Cancer Centre status. The NICR has laboratories in the Paul O’Gorman Building and the Herschel Building at Newcastle University. Clinical research is conducted mostly at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Freeman Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.[1]
