The Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre (QMB) based in London E1 is a modern early and late stage incubator for science and technology companies and is the culmination of a four-year capital investment partnership between Queen Mary and the London Development Agency (now the GLA).  QMB is a wholly owned company of Queen Mary Innovation, the technology transfer company of Queen Mary University of London.  QMB was developed to promote London as a world-class bioscience cluster – and to attract and retain the best scientific talent and intellectual property driven science firms in the capital.

Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation CentreThe Centre is a 52,000 square feet capacity building and is centrally located inside London, on the research campus of Bart‘s and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Whitechapel.

The Centre is presently the largest purpose-built commercial lab space in London.   Accommodation is available in lab. suite sizes from 600 square feet upwards, with competitively-priced leases relative to other London-based offerings.  The flexibility of the centre‘s floor plan means space can be easily reconfigured to meet a tenant’s needs.  Basic features include sealed floor coverings in the laboratories, sinks, carpeted floors in offices and large ceiling voids to accommodate a tenant’s bespoke air-handling needs, e.g. fume hood ducting.

Why the QMB Innovation Centre?

The QMB Innovation Centre offers reconfigurable laboratory and write-up space and flexible leases. The Centre also facilitates access to Queen Mary Innovation (QMI), which promotes enterprise and innovation across Queen Mary, University of London. QMI's expertise in technology transfer, investment, marketing and business development can bring significant benefits to the Centre's tenants, e.g. academia-industry collaborative projects.
