The creation of the London BioScience Innovation Centre in 2000 was a direct response to the evident shortage of accommodation for life sciences activity in central London.
LBIC formed a key part of the London Development Agency’s strategy for life sciences, with the objective of developing a commercial life sciences cluster around the capital’s world-class knowledge base.
Today, LBIC provides a focus for life sciences activity in the UK capital, offering laboratory and office facilities of an exceptionally high standard and a professional front door that cannot fail to impress.
Owned by the prestigious Royal Veterinary College, LBIC is home to over 60 biotechnology and life science companies in central London, including small start-ups and more established players.
Our location is second-to-none: just a short walk from St Pancras International station, the new Francis Crick Institute and the British Library, providing free access to research materials and business support.
We attract biotechnology, life science product and diagnostic companies, contract research organisations, medical device companies and service providers.
LBIC clients benefit from shared networking space and meeting rooms as well as close proximity to the various financial services available throughout the capital. Our management team is experienced in building and supporting biotechnology businesses. We understand both the pitfalls and the drivers for success.
