Undertaking pioneering research Undertaking pioneering research

The Biomedical Research Centre (BMRC) is a unique collaboration between the School of Biological Sciences and the Norwich Medical School. The latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) ranked 80% of our research as "world leading" and 100% of our research as "internationally excellent".
 
Building on this success the new Biomedical Research Centre is undertaking pioneering work into diet and health, cancer, arthritis and other musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular disease, neurological disease, mitochondrial biology, energy metabolism and infectious diseases.
 
Purpose built, the BMRC provides state-of-the-art infrastructure to perform molecular bioscience research and is a base for over 100 research scientists. The Centre maintains close links with the nearby Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and The Quadram Institute to ensure that all research has as its ultimate objective the solution of medical problems.
