“Newcastle is the ideal place for a growing life science business. The city has a strong reputation for research excellence led by two outstanding universities and one of the UK’s leading NHS trusts. Newcastle also has great local and national transport links which are essential for our ‘direct to consumer’ testing services.
“The plug and play infrastructure and flexible nature of our tenancy provides us with the confidence that, as we grow, we can adapt our space and laboratory configuration to keep pace with our requirements. As an added benefit, the location is ideally suited for easy access for staff, customers, and visitors. A key factor which influenced our decision when selecting a new home, was that Newcastle Helix was creating a community of organisations operating within the scientific sector. In the year following our occupation, we have begun to identify synergies between the businesses who we look to undertake collaborative projects with.
“The Biosphere is in the heart of a supportive, business community that actively collaborates and pulls in the same direction to achieve shared growth. Newcastle’s life sciences community is thriving, helped in no small part by the supportive infrastructure provided to growing Biotechnology industries.”
