Delivering to our mission is the responsibility of our research leaders, recognised experts in their fields who manage interdisciplinary research groups. As well as carrying out excellent research, groups host PhD students, reflecting the importance the Quadram Institute places on training the next generation of food and health scientists. Research leaders are encouraged to maximise the societal impacts from their research, driving innovation.
