We answer fundamental questions, and aim to directly address global challenges.
Our knowledge of plants and microbes feeds into addressing the challenges faced by society; including food security, improving the health of a growing population and our research has a significant impact on industrial biotechnology.
The John Innes Centre’s Scientific Departments work together with partners across the world to achieve the goals of each strategic programme. We also host a range of Scientific Facilities and support functions that deliver world-class scientific technologies and expert support to all researchers on site here in Norwich.
Our four Institute Strategic Programmes are funded by the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
