The Quadram Institute routinely publishes web pages covering information of specific interest to the Public. Our current spotlights are on:

Apple facts

This factsheet has been developed to assist those interested in apples and their products. Scientific interest in apples has grown due to research into potential health benefits of the fruit and juice as well as the increasing number of individuals who are allergic to apple.

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.
