The talk at the hospital's Benjamin Gooch lecture theatre on Thursday, April 27 from 6pm to 7.30pm will give people the chance to hear about the Quadram Institute from those involved.

NNUH Consultant Hepatologist Dr Simon Rushbrook will be giving an insight into the facility and its mission to develop solutions to worldwide challenges in human health, food and disease.

NNUH's regional endoscopy facility will move to the Quadram Institute in summer 2018 where it will offer world-class treatments for patients in a facility where clinicians will work alongside scientists to conduct research to improve human health and wellbeing throughout life. In-patient services will remain at the main hospital site.

The talk is all the more timely, taking place during Bowel Cancer Awareness Month which this year's emphasis on bowel cancer screening. The Quadram Institute will bring together the NNUH gastrointestinal endoscopy facility with the Institute of Food Research (IFR) and research teams from the University of East Anglia (UEA) Science Faculty and Medical School.
