MICRON showcases the wide variety of microbiological research taking place at the Norwich Research Park (NRP). Our aim is to facilitate links between researchers and research bodies, driving high quality research and open communication between scientists. The NRP encompasses scientists and projects at the John Innes Centre, the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Institute of Food Research, the Earlham Institute and the University of East Anglia, making Norwich the UK’s leading site for microbiological research.

Microbial research at the NRP is generating important discoveries year on year. Our research has potential applications in the fields of pharmaceuticals, agriculture, food processing and environmental monitoring and remediation.
