Regional Endoscopy UnitThe Quadram Institute is a food and health research and endoscopy centre combining scientific excellence and clinical expertise to deliver better patient care whilst accelerating innovation.

Our mission is to deliver healthier lives through innovation in gut health, microbiology and food.

Our vision is to understand how food and microbes interact to promote health and prevent disease.

The Quadram Institute will be engaged in fundamental and translational food and health research, alongside clinical studies and one of Europe’s largest endoscopy centres, and has brought all of these elements together under one roof in a new state-of-the-art building on the Norwich Research Park.

 

Can you help in a new study into pregnancy and early life?

Researchers at Quadram Institute Bioscience are looking to enrol pregnant mothers who are less than 22 weeks pregnant to take part in The PEARL Study (Pregnancy & Early Life) to understand how the transmission of beneficial microbes from mother to baby affects health.

Quadram Institute Bioscience and the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital are launching the PEARL Study to better understand the importance of beneficial microbes in the development of the infant microbiota. This will help define microbial ‘signatures’ that are beneficial to health and lead to new therapies to promote health and prevent disease.

If you are less than 22 weeks pregnant and would like to know more, please visit the study website www.quadram.ac.uk/pearlstudy
