Quadram Institute’s £400,000 boost from Big C
10 October, 2016
Norwich Research Park’s (NRP) planned Quadram Institute (QI) partners received a huge boost to help mark the launch of a £3 million fundraising campaign with an opening £400,000 donation from Big C.

“This significant donation is a tremendous contribution and kick starts the appeal we are launching to help meet QI’s £75 million building costs,” said Prof David Richardson, Vice-Chancellor at the University of East Anglia (UEA). “Big C are the first donors to support the development of the building, which is scheduled to open in May 2018, and we thank them for this generous leadership gift.”

The QI brings together research teams from the Institute of Food Research (IFR), UEA and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) as part of a major initiative, co-funded by the UK’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). It will create a new world-class facility to provide a step-change in food and health research and innovation to address major health conditions.


The new institute encompasses the Institute of Food Research, which is a partner in the Invest in ME Research on the gut in ME, and the IiMER Centre of Excellence is based at Norwich Research Park, where the IFR/Quadram Institute is based, but includes UEA and Earlham Institute (formerly The Genome Analysis Centre) and the University Hospital.
