A new hub for biosciences is launching in Aberdeen. The £40 million life science research and commercialisation facility is being called the ONE BioHub and is set to support scientists and innovators as they work to turn research into businesses. The hub will also offer support on their entrepreneurial journey.

ONE BioHub intends to provide a range of businesses, from start-ups to spinouts, tackling modern health challenges with incubator laboratories and offices, fully customisable grow-on space, commercialisation and growth programmes, and access to mentors, expert networks and investors. At full occupancy, the BioHub will accommodate up to 400 bio-entrepreneurs.

When formally launching ONE BioHub to the life sciences community, partners and stakeholders, Scottish Government Innovation Minister Richard Lochhead said: “ONE BioHub will be a tremendous asset for the North East and the whole of Scotland. It will allow the already thriving life sciences cluster in the region to continue growing, innovating and succeeding. This includes important work in developing innovative treatments for conditions like Alzheimer’s Disease and cancer.

ONE BioHub is led by private sector economic development catalyst Opportunity North East and delivered in partnership with the UK Government, Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise, NHS Grampian and the University of Aberdeen, and supported by the Aberdeen City Region Deal.
