About the employer

In preparation for the full opening of the Quadram Institute in mid-2018, the Institute of Food Research (IFR) has become Quadram Institute Bioscience. Its company number remains the same as does the registered office until it moves to the new Quadram Institute building in mid-2018.

Our Vision

The Quadram Institute will create new interfaces between food science, gut  biology, human health and disease, capitalising on the world-class bioscience  cluster based at the Norwich Research Park. Scientists working with clinicians will work closely with major national and international funding bodies and charities, collaborators and investors to  ensure translation of our fundamental science to benefit patients, consumers  and wider society.

The mission of the Quadram Institute is to understand how food and the gut  microbiota are linked to the promotion of health and the prevention of disease,  with an emphasis on diet- and age-associated diseases. We will use this knowledge to develop evidence-based strategies to  maximise positive impacts of food on health, from early life to the extension of a healthy lifespan in old age, and reduce the economic and societal costs of chronic diseases.

The Quadram Institute  – an interdisciplinary institute to maximise the unique cluster of academic excellence and clinical expertise at the Norwich Research Park, working alongside the food and pharmaceutical industries


Quadram Institute Bioscience is a company limited by guarantee, with charitable status (registration number 1058499) and a Board of Trustees that oversee the Institute’ activities. Responsibility for day-to-day matters is delegated to the Institute Director and the Executive Board within an agreed and clearly understood framework of strategic control.
