The future is exciting.  The Quadram Institute is a new £multi-million state-of-the-art food and health research and endoscopy centre that will open mid-2018. QIB Extra will be moving premises over to the Quadram Institute once the building is ready. 

It will be at the forefront of a new interface between food science, gut biology and health, developing solutions to worldwide challenges in food-related disease and human health.  It will bring together research teams from the Quadram Institute (QI), with others from the University of East Anglia, as well as the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals’ regional gastrointestinal endoscopy unit.

It will be engaged in fundamental and translational food and health research, alongside clinical studies, endoscopy and industry, working together to become a leading international hub for food and health research.  It will combine scientific excellence and clinical expertise, delivering impacts on patient care and accelerating innovation.

The Quadram Institute will maximise the impact of the unique world-class bioscience cluster based at the Norwich Research Park, including the excellent plant and microbial science at the John Innes Centre and computational science and sequencing expertise at the Earlham Institute.
