Licencees often tell us that the BioHub has a ‘verve’ that is difficult to find in commercially run laboratories. We believe this is because of our can-do attitude, and our location within the Edgbaston Medical Quarter.
Our location on the edge of campus provides easy access to the University, the Institute of Translational Medicine and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. We are well-connected in this local ecosystem, which can provide:
- Facilities such as offices and meeting rooms
- Services such as radioactive material and waste handling, specialist gas supply
- Equipment such as microscopes, spectrophotometers
- Expertise such as microbiology, drug development, laboratory health and safety
Our laboratory managers and Research Park staff ensure that licencees get access to the equipment, supplies and services they need – as well as providing links to organisations such as West Midlands Academic Health Sciences Network, Medilink Midlands and other life science networks.
BioHub licencees can also apply for membership of the BizzInn business incubator, which provides mentoring and training for start-ups and 24/7 hot-desking space.
