A little bit about us

Situated on the Manchester Science Parks site within the idyllic Cheshire countryside, BioHub offers exceptional state-of-the-art laboratories for medtech and biotech startups. Operated by the UK’s largest bioscience incubator company, BioCity Group, BioHub is a short walk from the sought-after village of Alderley Edge and brings together laboratories, commercial office space, shared scientific services, training, business support and investment under one roof. By doing this the BioHub provides the optimum environment for up and coming pharmaceutical, biotech and life science companies need to thrive.

Make the space your own

BioHub offers a blank canvas and endless possibilities growing companies need. Custom fit-outs, uninterruptible power sources, air handling systems, etc. We have seen it all; so, if the space is right, but the contents aren’t, we work together to get it spot-on.

In the Zone

The companies at BioHub benefit greatly from being based within the Enterprise Zones, enjoying reduced business rates, simplified planning processes and enhanced capital allowances (tax relief).

Industry perks

Close connections between University of Manchester, the Central Manchester Foundation Hospitals NHS Trust, N8 (the leading 8 research universities in the region), the Northern Health Science Alliance, MIDAS (Manchester’s inward investment agency), Cheshire East Council’s Skills and Growth company and UKTI, ensure our companies always know about valuable local opportunities.
