Nitrous Oxide Research Network in Europe video summarising how the European Nitrogen Cycle meetings enhance communication and collaboration within Europe.

Biomedical Research Centre

Purpose built state-of-the-art research centre at the University of East Anglia undertaking pioneering work to provide greater understanding and better treatment of some of the 21st Century's toughest medical challenges. Contains the containment level 3 ‘Wolfson Laboratory for Emerging Infectious Diseases' enabling study of process biology of microbial pathogens.

British BioAlcohols Group (BBAG)

A consortium including UEA, Institute of Food Research and the National Yeast Culture Collection (John Innes Centre), established to exploit agri-food-chain biomass in order to maximise bioalcohol production whilst minimising competition with the food industry. The Group's aim is to help to make the UK a leader in low-carbon transport and other industries that their work will nurture and sustain.

The Adapt Low Carbon Group brings together a broad range of expertise and builds upon the widely acknowledged successes of the University of East Anglia's business activities in the low carbon sector. Based at Norwich Research Park (NRP), Adapt promotes enterprising low carbon concerns and we work closely with the Norwich Business School and the School of Environmental Sciences.

Centre for Molecular and Structural Biochemistry

The CMSB, based at University of East Anglia has an international reputation for excellence in its field. The broad aim of the group is to understand: the activation and redox cycling of inorganic substrates involved in the bacterial nitrogen, oxygen and sulphur cycles; metal ion metabolism and metal-microbe interactions; protein:protein interactions in bacterial and plant metabolism.


A leading interdisciplinary research centre in the field of environmental and sustainable development based at the University of East Anglia.

School of Environmental Sciences

The School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia is one of the longest established, largest and most fully developed Schools of Environmental Sciences in Europe.

Henry Wellcome Laboratories for Biological Chemistry

Interested in defining biological chemistries from the cellular to the sub-molecular level, from mechanisms of metal ion homeostasis to the factors that determine electron distribution. The interdisciplinary approach to studying these processes draws on a repertoire of techniques including molecular biology, protein chemistry, density functional theory, voltammetry and advanced spectroscopic methods.


A new science and knowledge transfer initiative promoting innovation in alternative and non-food crops. The purpose of the InCrops project is to stimulate the business and commercial sector in the region to develop and adopt more new technologies for the exploitation of new and existing crops through to products and markets.

Norwich Research Park

A collaboration between the University of East Anglia, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and three independent research centres; the John Innes Centre, the Institute of Food Research, and the Sainsbury Laboratory. With over 9,000 people the Norwich Research Park has one of Europe's largest single-site concentrations of research in Health, Food and Environmental Sciences.

Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research

The Tyndall Centre brings together scientists, economists, engineers and social scientists, who together are working to develop sustainable responses to climate change through trans-disciplinary research and dialogue on both a national and international level - not just within the research community, but also with business leaders, policy advisors, the media and the public in general.

Wolfson Fermentation Laboratory

University of East Anglia's hub for work on Process Biology of microbial growth and metabolism, the Wolfson Fermentation Laboratory is a containment level 2 facility containing a range of large-scale bioreactors (15-200 litres) and downstream processing facilities that enable large-scale purification of proteins or metabolites from range of microorganisms. It also houses a number of continuous culture bioreactors for use in post-genomic studies on microbial physiology.

Joint Genome Institute: Paracoccus denitrificans

Complete genome sequence of the model denitrifying bacterium Paracoccus denitrificans

COST action 856: the Ecological Aspects of Denitrification

Improve understanding of factors governing denitrification at the molecular, cellular and environmental level to help mimimize the negative effects of nitrogen turnover in the environment and to make use of denitrification and related processes to enhance environmental quality.
