University of Glasgow announces health innovation hub

The University of Glasgow has announced the construction of a health innovation hub.

In partnership with property developer Kadans Science Partner and with support from Scottish Enterprise, the hub will set the stage for a “thriving life sciences cluster” in the area, said the University.

The hub will be home to commercial businesses as well as the University of Glasgow-led Living Laboratory for Precision Medicine – a programme supported by UKRI Strength in Places Funding which is focused on translating research and healthcare innovation into a real-world clinical setting.

Due for completion in 2025, the hub will be located within the university’s Glasgow Riverside Innovation District (GRID) based in Govan.

“The University and Kadans Health Innovation Hub will be the cornerstone of our UKRI Strength in Places-funded Living Laboratory for Precision Medicine,” said Iain McInnes, University of Glasgow vice principal and head of the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences. “The world-class facilities created here will be key to the supportive and dynamic ecosystem that brings together academics, industry partners and the NHS to achieve this goal.”

He continued: “The Health Innovation Hub will be a catalyst for collaboration and innovation to better tackle global healthcare challenges, bringing real-world benefits to patients and the NHS.”
