About this community
Undertakes innovative biomedical research to discover the molecular mechanisms that underlie normal cellular processes and functions, and how, over lifetime, their failure or abnormality may lead to disease
The Babraham Institute is located six miles south-east of the university city of Cambridge, UK. We undertake innovative biomedical research to discover the molecular mechanisms that underlie normal cellular processes and functions, and how, over lifetime, their failure or abnormality may lead to disease. The Institute is a registered charity, sponsored by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), to underpin its national responsibilities for healthcare research and training.
Our research is also supported by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and many medical charities and other organisations.
