Our location

The heart of British biotechnology

A vibrant city, an intellectual powerhouse, a research melting pot, a parkland campus: our environment is rich and rewarding.

Biotechnology doesn't happen only at the bench or the computer. It needs a nurturing environment to imagine possibilities, create ideas, build research and grow companies. And people need an intellectual, social and physical environment in which they can thrive.

Our location provides these environments.

The University of Cambridge is consistently ranked among the best in the world for research, especially in biological science. Cambridge and the local area also host the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, with 15 Nobel Prizes, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and EMBL-EBI, Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Babraham Institute, with whom we share our campus.

The 'Cambridge Phenomenon' centres on its many science parks, where leading technology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies such as Amgen, ARM, Astra Zeneca, Illumina, MedImmune and many others have a base.

We share the Babraham Research Campus with 60 companies - as well as the Babraham Institute. The Campus is served by frequent buses to and from Cambridge city centre.

One of the first bioincubator sites in the UK, the Campus has become very active - and interactive - with a full seminar programme as well as excellent sports and social facilities.
