Babraham Research Campus
- Leading hub of biomedical innovation in the Cambridge area and UK
- Plays a key role supporting the region's life-sciences network and early-stage biomedical enterprises
National research and innovation campus
On the Campus excellent basic bioscience researchers are co-located with growing biotechnology enterprises. This ensures that newly established and growing spin-out companies and SMEs have access to world-leading researchers and facilities, and drives excellent research into application.
Scientists conduct life sciences research to generate new knowledge of biological mechanisms underpinning lifelong health and wellbeing, particularly in the areas of cell signalling, immunology, neuroscience and epigenetics
In 2011, the Government awarded BBSRC £44M to invest in the Campus to deliver innovation from the research base, generate economic growth and create jobs.
The investment will help to create and support new companies and jobs based on world-leading bioscience. Developments to the Campus include:
- A fifth new bioincubator building
- New follow-on laboratory
- Existing building refurbishments
- Improvements to infrastructure including roads and utilities
- New composting facility
- An extension to the car park opened in October 2011
- The composting facility completed in May 2012
- The latest building within the bioincubator, Moneta, accepted its first tenants in April 2012. The available lab space is now nearly 8000m2
- Moneta was officially opened by David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science in May 2012
- Follow-on laboratory, which will provide an additional 20,000ft2 of laboratory and office space, due for completion in March 2013
