Babraham Research Campus
Home to 59 life science companies and co-located with the Babraham Institute, a world-leading research institute in life sciences. World-class research and business come together in a campus environment to promote innovation and strengthen links between academia and the commercial world.
Funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the site provides laboratory and office facilities, with a supportive and well networked community to both startup and scaleup companies.
Campus companies have varying funding streams and structures, from those funded by grants and customer revenues, to those funded by venture capital and larger pharma deals. Others are traded on the public markets. They are translating UK science from ideas into products, services and therapies, creating new jobs, and attracting inward investment.
Over £500m has been invested into these companies through equity and corporate deals post January 2015, and since 2017 campus companies have raised an additional £308m, most of which originating from outside the UK. Several of the companies on campus have grown rapidly and are expected to be among the leading life science companies of the future.
If you know any national or local scaleup programmes that you want to recommend as a potential case study for the Institute to consider please do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
