Bioscience in Sheffield
Sheffield has great strength and depth in its bioscience, particularly in genomic medicine, drug discovery, biomaterials, tissue engineering, stem cell biology and environmental biotechnology. These strengths drive an expanding nucleus of bioscience companies ranging from established firms to developing early stage start-ups.
A Growing Community of Bioentrepreneurs
This growing and vibrant community is being supported by regional cluster development and priority investment strategies making Sheffield an attractive proposition to companies able to spot the opportunity.
A Collaborative Bioscience Cluster
The cluster also includes two world class universities, centres for industrial collaboration and bioscience support networks. Together, these partners are encouraging greater innovation, higher productivity, increased inward investment and are supporting growing numbers of spin out companies. Many of the region's most exciting new companies have spun out of the University of Sheffield. A number of government/public laboratories and health authorities within the region also engage in bioscience research.
A Sheffield Location Benefits Bioscience Companies
Bioscience companies locating in Sheffield can access current and emerging technology and innovations by engaging the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, and other members of Sheffield´s collaborative bioscience community. Sheffield's central location and excellent transport links enable collaborations with the wider bioscience community.
