Norwich Research Park and Quadram Institute

Making Translational Science Work

Norwich Research Park 1030-1630 Sept 9

Draft programme and booking available around June 13 - please revisit

This one day event jointly organised by S-Lab and UKSPA has four elements:

  • Highlighting the translational science vision and implementation at Norwich Research Park and its on-site and adjacent collaborative organisations - the Earlham Institute (plant genomics), the John Innes Centre (plant science, genetics and microbiology), the Quadram Institute (food science, gut biology and health), the Norwich and NorfolkUniversity Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the Sainsbury Laboratory (plant disease) and the University of East Anglia.
  • Showcasing, and providing tours of, the new building housing the Quadram Institute - the first time that this has been exposed to public view.
  • Exploring topics of relevance to the operation of translational and other research facilities, including design and use of office and write-up space; technical staff skills and careers; and biosafety.
  • Looking at effective translational research activities by other UKSPA members, (possibly including the University of Glasgow Clinical Innovation Zone, winner of the UKSPA “Setting the Pace Award 2019”) and launching a proposed UKSPA translational special interest group with relevant interests and activities. 

It is hoped that the latter will be enabled not only by the Conference, but also by an evening presentation on/tour of one of Europe’s largest endoscopy units which, though part of the NHS, is located within the Quadram Institute building to foster close links with researchers. (separately bookable when details are confirmed).
