Building a more sustainable future through the power of plant and microbial science
The John Innes Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory are embarking on an extensive programme of redevelopment to realise our ambitious vision, Healthy Plants, Healthy People, Healthy Planet.
We are seeking private capital investment alongside public funding to enable us to create a state-of-the-art flexible science campus at the heart of the Norwich Research Park.

Our Vision – HP3
Healthy Plants, Healthy People, Healthy Planet (HP3) is our vision for achieving a safer, healthier and more sustainable future through the power of plant and microbial science.
The John Innes Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory are at the forefront of efforts to bring this vision to life, and our ambitious programme of redevelopment will enable a step change in capability.
The proposed redevelopment will create a state-of-the-art flexible science campus, a hub to seize new opportunities and boost the national and international impact of plant and microbial research, from a wider research cluster at the Norwich Research Park.
In essence we want to establish the very best plant and microbial science laboratory infrastructure anywhere in the world.
We are working with UKRI’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) to develop the case for investment in our new infrastructure, and are seeking private capital investment alongside public funding to enable us to realise our exciting and ambitious vision.
The John Innes Centre is an independent, international research centre specialising in plant science and microbiology. It is a registered charity funded by UKRI-BBSRC, the European Research Council and other charitable sources including the John Innes Foundation. The John Innes Centre uses genetic approaches to answer fundamental questions of bioscience, and to translate the answers into environmental and societal benefits.
The Sainsbury Laboratory is a world-leading independent research institute that specialises in plant-microbe interactions, funded by The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, The University of East Anglia and UKRI-BBSRC. Its work is focused on leading global efforts to reduce crop losses to disease.
