The Quadram Institute is the name of the new centre for food and health research to be located at the heart of the Norwich Research Park, one of Europe’s largest single-site concentrations of research in food, health and environmental sciences.
The Quadram Institute will be at the forefront of a new interface between food science, gut biology and health, developing solutions to worldwide challenges in food-related disease and human health.
Labflex have been selected to supply The Quadram Institute with both laboratory solutions and fume cupboards with a total project value excessing £1 million.
The Quadram Institute will bring together research teams from Quadram Institute Bioscience, with others from the University of East Anglia’s Faculty of Science and Norwich Medical School, as well as the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals’ regional gastrointestinal endoscopy unit.
The institute will have the capacity for 300 research staff and a further 100 staff supporting one of Europe’s largest endoscopy facilities. It will be engaged in fundamental and translational food and health research, alongside clinical studies, endoscopy and industry, working together to become a leading international hub for food and health research, combining scientific excellence and clinical expertise, delivering impacts on patient care and accelerating innovation.
The Quadram Institute is on schedule to be complete by mid-2018.
