The Biodiscovery Institute is a world-leading hub of interdisciplinary research excellence that is shaping the future of health and biotechnology.
Our mission is simple, yet complex by its nature: through chemical and biological discovery and engineering we diagnose, treat and cure disease, and provide security for quality of life.
Opened in 2020, the £100 million Biodiscovery Institute is home to 850 talented academics, researchers and clinicians who share a common passion: to use, or support, scientific endeavour to deliver change for the greater good.
We are globally-respected leaders in six key areas:
- Taming microbes
- Defeating cancer
- Regenerating and modelling tissues
- Engineering biology
- Demystifying biomolecular complexity
- Pioneering therapeutics
We foster an innovative environment that attracts major investment for pioneering research. Our teams have leveraged £223 million funding over the past five years alone. We collaborate with industry locally, nationally and globally.
We are the Biodiscovery Institute: new ideas, pioneering research, and translation into commercial reality.
