The natural home for biomedical companies

If you are involved in innovative biomedical research or you supply products and services for biomedical research, we invite you to locate your business on the Biomedical Campus where you will be part of a thriving community of over 12,000 research scientists and healthcare professionals with the shared ambition of bringing new and improved products and services to patients.

More than just a science park

The Biomedical Campus is different from conventional science parks. It is a highly networked community; a community of Academics, Businesses and Clinicians who are committed to working together to bring new and improved products and services to patients; an environment where companies can research and develop products in partnership with clinicians; where products can be transitioned from the laboratory to the clinic on the same site; and where businesses can communicate, person-to-person, with key opinion leaders both from academia and the NHS.
