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
