The Citylabs campus is part of Manchester Science Partnerships and the Bruntwood SciTech network of thriving innovation districts, in a JV partnership with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). Located in the heart of the city’s Oxford Road Corridor innovation district, within the largest clinical academic campus in Europe and the UK’s largest provider Trust, the campus is a cluster of diagnostics, medtech, digital health and genomics businesses who are driving the future of medicine and healthcare.
The campus is currently undergoing a significant £95m expansion to create Citylabs 2.0, 3.0, & 4.0 as part of the creation of a world-leading genomics, precision medicine and health innovation cluster. The ever-growing cluster will become home to global diagnostics company QIAGEN in 2021, who will base their European Centre of Excellence for Precision Medicine at the campus
Being located at the campus also offers access to a comprehensive programme of business support which includes direct access to MFT clinicians, resources, and patients, and access to skills and talent, finance and funding and new markets, as well as access to a unique public, private, clinical, academic partner network.
The campus has Enterprise Zone status providing rate relief and contributions to capital investment of up to £50,000 per year for 5 years, if applied for before 31 March 2021.
