What is the Gut Microbiome? A Masterclass in Microbes

Living inside of you are trillions of microbes – and they’re vital for your health. The gut microbiome has limitless potential to prevent and treat disease, and Quadram Institute experts are delving into an ecosystem as dense as the Amazon rainforest to better human health. But, what exactly is the gut microbiome? Take a masterclass in microbes as we uncover this amazing microscopic world.

This Unrelenting Pandemic

One year into the COVID-19 pandemic, we look back in a photo essay at how sequencing coronavirus genomes in the Quadram Institute has helped fight back against the virus.

Faecal Microbiota Transplants (FMT)

Quadram Institute microbiologists have collaborated with clinicians at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) to develop and implement a successful new treatment for recurring Clostridium difficile infections.

Meet the microbes

At the Quadram Institute, we’re interested in microbes, and how they interact with us. We carry trillions of microbes on and in our bodies. This population of microbes is known as the microbiota, or microbiome, and we’re now starting to realise how important it is to our health.
