BioHub Birmingham® develops new incubator space to meet increasing demand for biomedical facilities

BioHub Birmingham® is constructing 5,000sq ft of self-contained laboratory and office suites at the heart of the BHP campus, in response to increasing demand for biomedical incubator space.

The BioHub opened in 2015 and its shared facilities on the ground floor are now operating at capacity.

Managed by University of Birmingham Enterprise, it is located at the Birmingham Research Park, which provides incubation services and facilities as well as commercial office space for biomedical and hi-tech companies.

The University has invested significantly to create a formidable landscape for medical innovation and in last year alone, has opened:

The University ranks 4th in the UK for the production of Intellectual Property (patents) and much of its medical innovation comes from interdisciplinary research, where scientists who apply engineering or chemistry know-how to solve problems in medicine.  This collaborative landscape has attracted increasing attention from international business, and the University currently has over 200 industrial partners, spanning all business sectors, who use its facilities and research expertise.

The BioHub is one part of this landscape, and its current tenants include diagnostics, precision medicine, and biotechnology companies, who share laboratory and office space.

The new development will create laboratory / office suites with sizes starting at 600sqft/55m2.  The enquiry list for the new suites is now open, for further details or a tour of the facilities contact Angie Reynolds, Birmingham Research Park Manager, a.reynolds.1@bham.ac.uk.
