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.

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 Institute of Food Research (IFR), with others from the University of East Anglia, as well as the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals’ regional gastrointestinal endoscopy unit.  Endoscopy patients click here for further information.

Quadram Institute 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 better patient care and accelerating innovation.

As a first step to realising the ambition of the Quadram Institute, on April 28 2017, the Institute of Food Research (IFR) transformed into Quadram Institute Bioscience.
