Close to the University of Birmingham and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, development is underway for a cutting edge Life Sciences Campus. This will create up to 50,000sqm of new floor space across a number of 3-4 storey buildings in a campus setting, providing a high quality environment for new and growing businesses.
The space will be suitable for research and development, clinical trials, pharmaceutical manufacturing and regional headquarters; an ideal expansion destination for SMEs from around the world.
The Life Sciences Campus is located within an internationally- recognised clinical academic community whose competitive advantages are unrivalled in the UK with the successful commercialisation of healthcare innovation.
This includes the new Institute of Translational Medicine, a world class clinical research facility, which will play a pivotal role in supporting the expansion of life sciences research and education in Birmingham and the region.
It will facilitate SMEs and large pharma and biotechnology firms to work more closely with clinicians and academics, and create an effective entry for industry partners e.g. Pharma, Diagnostics, Medical Devices and Digital Health into the complex world of healthcare research and routes to market.
The wider Edgbaston area already provides a world class centre of scientific excellence with a proliferation of hospitals, medical organisations, specialist care centres, GP clinics and routine care facilities as well as training facilities.
Working with membership organisations such as MediLink West Midlands, and WMAHSN, region wide industry and collaboration specialists, companies have access to comprehensive industry knowledge and meetings with industry experts, who will help develop businesses and maximise the commercial opportunities within the network.
