The Babraham Institute, which receives strategic funding (a total of £23.1M in 2012-13) from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), undertakes world-leading research to generate new knowledge of biological mechanisms underpinning ageing, development and the maintenance of health. Research focuses on signalling and genome regulation, particularly the interplay between the two and how epigenetic signals can influence important physiological adaptations during the lifespan of an organism. By determining how the body reacts to dietary and environmental stimuli and also how it manages microbial and viral interactions, we aim to improve wellbeing and healthier ageing.
