Quadram Institute Bioscience benefits from its location on the edge of Norwich, combining a pleasant location set in 230 hectares of parkland with proximity to Norwich, a vibrant city that mixes the past and the future to make an inspiring place to live and work.
We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. As part of that commitment we signed up to the Athena Swan Charter and were awarded Bronze status on International Women’s Day in March 2022.
