Our core research areas are funded by the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
Through four Institute Strategic Programmes our research directly addresses BBSRC objectives in;
- Food security
- Human health
- 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 Technology Platforms that deliver world-class scientific support to all researchers on site.
