Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

The Babraham Institute undertakes world-leading research into understanding the biology of how our bodies work, including what changes as we age and during disease. Our research is split into four programmes: Epigenetics, Signalling, Lymphocyte Signalling and Nuclear Dynamics, supported by strategic programme grants from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and additional funding from research councils, the EU and charities.

We maximise the impact of our research through Knowledge Exchange, Commercialisation and Public Engagement activities. We do this by collaborating with other academics, policy makers, charities, schools, the general public and industry, including companies on the Babraham Research Campus. Commercialisation is achieved in collaboration with the Institute’s wholly-owned trading arm, Babraham Institute Enterprise Limited.
