BioHub Incubator


The BioHub is a specialist incubator for new and early-stage biotech and life science businesses.  Our incubator provides the right support, resource and expertise for businesses to develop, grow and succeed.

With over 150 companies employing over 500 staff, it is home to a vibrant community of science professionals. The BioHub is ideally suited to biotech and life science businesses looking for a space of 4,000 sq ft or less. However, the scale and space available at Alderley Park offers companies in our BioHub plenty of room to grow and expand within the Park at their own rate.

Helping build stronger bioscience businesses, faster

Managed by the BioCity Group, BioHub provides a home for start-up and growing life science companies. Creating an environment in which businesses are more likely to succeed, focusing on five core elements:
