The Institutes that currently comprise the National Institutes of Bioscience are:

logo-wall-babrahamThe Babraham Institute undertakes innovative, world-leading life sciences research to generate new knowledge of the biological mechanisms underpinning ageing, development and the maintenance of health and wellbeing.

logo-wall-jbersThe Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) is an internationally recognised research and teaching centre at Aberystwyth University. Scientists at IBERS conduct basic, strategic and applied research to improve agricultural and livestock productivity and mitigate the effects of climate change.

The Earlham Institute (Formerly Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC)) builds upon the research foundation developed as TGAC and continue to help answer the most fundamental questions in biological sciences today, from its home on Norwich Research Park.

The Quadram Institute is at the interface between food science, gut biology, human health and disease. It is developing solutions to worldwide challenges in diet-related disease and human health, capitalising on the world-class bioscience cluster at the Norwich Research Park.

The John Innes Centre (JIC) is an internationally renowned bioscience research centre in plant science and microbiology. JIC’s mission is to advance the scientific understanding of plants and microbes and to apply this knowledge for the benefit of society and the environment through research, knowledge exchange, commercialisation and training.

logo-wall-pirbrightThe Pirbright Institute, formerly the Institute for Animal Health, is a world-leading centre of excellence for research into infectious diseases of farm animals. Work at the Pirbright Institute aims to advance the knowledge of veterinary and medical science, and to enhance the sustainability of livestock farming.

logo-wall-roslinThe Roslin Institute is part of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, the University of Edinburgh. The Institute undertakes research on the health and welfare of animals and seeks to apply findings in basic animal sciences to human and veterinary medicine, the livestock industry and food security.
