Biodiscovery Institute

The Biodiscovery Institute is a world-leading hub of interdisciplinary research excellence that is shaping the future of health and biotechnology.

The £100 million Biodiscovery Institute is home to nearly 1,000 talented academics, researchers, clinicians and other support staff who share a common passion: to use, or support, scientific endeavour to deliver change for the greater good.

Our mission is simple, yet complex by its nature: through chemical biological discovery and engineering we diagnose, treat and cure disease, and provide security for quality of life.

We are the Biodiscovery Institute.

We've created a suite of buildings to house nearly 1,000 staff and PhD students dedicated to biodiscovery.
