University science hub to expand
A SCIENCE hub at the University of Birmingham is expanding in response to demand for its space.
A 5,000 sq ft lab and office suite will be built at BioHub Birmingham in Edgbaston.
The BioHub opened in 2015 and its shared facilities on the ground floor are now operating at capacity, according to the institute.
The hub is managed by University of Birmingham Enterprise on Birmingham Research Park which provides incubation services and facilities alongside commercial office space for biomedical and hi-tech companies.
Other recent development projects on the campus aimed at improving medical innovation include the Healthcare Technologies Institute, the Centre for Custom Medical Devices and the Medical Devices Testing and Evaluation Centre.
