The Norwich Research Park represents a regional, national and international powerhouse of expertise in the Life Sciences.

It's the extended Life Sciences campus that includes UEA, the Earlham Institute, the John Innes Centre, the Quadram Institute and The Sainsbury Laboratory, and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

At an institutional level, the different organisations within the Park are very closely aligned. For example, The Sainsbury Laboratory was set up as a joint venture between the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, the John Innes Foundation, UEA and BBSRC. The vision for the Quadram Institute was developed in a partnership between its forerunner, the Institute of Food Research, UEA, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and BBSRC.

The School of Biological Sciences represents an integral part of the Norwich Research Park. We work in numerous collaborations with colleagues on the Park, many of which, as Group and Project Leaders within their institutes, are employed by UEA. The School also has two faculty (Synergy appointments) based within the John Innes Centre. Overall, through shared staff, collaborative projects, joint supervision of students and sharing of facilities, we have a common vision with our colleagues across the Park to pursue excellent research with far-reaching impact.
