Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

The Babraham Institute undertakes world-leading research into understanding the biology of how our bodies work, including what changes as we age and during disease. Our research is split into four programmes: Epigenetics, Signalling, Lymphocyte Signalling and Nuclear Dynamics, supported by strategic programme grants from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and additional funding from research councils, the EU and charities.

We maximise the impact of our research through Knowledge Exchange, Commercialisation and Public Engagement activities. We do this by collaborating with other academics, policy makers, charities, schools, the general public and industry, including companies on the Babraham Research Campus. Commercialisation is achieved in collaboration with the Institute’s wholly-owned trading arm, Babraham Institute Enterprise Limited.

Sequencing
The Facility plays a crucial role in all the Institute’s research programmes and is also available to external users on a fee-for-service basis
Mass Spectrometry
The Mass Spectrometry Facility is housed in a purpose-built laboratory in a new building in the centre of the campus
Lipidomics
We have established methods to analyse neutral lipids, phospholipids and sphingolipids using a Shimadzu IT-TOF mass spectrometer coupled to a Prominence HPLC system
Imaging
Located within one of the Institute's research buildings, the facility is equipped with state-of-the-art commercial imaging technologies
Bioinformatics
The bioinformatics group provides an interface between the computational infrastructure of the insitute and the biology performed within the research groups
Biological Chemistry
Biological chemistry is the interface between chemistry and biology, requiring both synthetic organic chemistry skills and a knowledge of biochemistry
Biological Support Unit
Our state-of-the-art Biological Support Unit provides housing and care for pathogen-free rodents used in the academic research programmes and by private companies
Gene Targeting
Providing a complete service to generate genetically altered mouse strains for Babraham Institute research groups and external companies
Flow Cytometry
The Babraham Institute Flow Cytometry Core Facility offers high quality service and state-of-the-art instrumentation to members of Babraham Institute and external users.
