We’re building the best medical facilities for our citizens and the most advanced research environments for our businesses. Manchester now has Europe’s largest clinical academic campus following a billion pounds of investment.
We’re home to several medical research institutes; Europe’s biggest cancer treatment centre and the largest clinical trials unit in the world. New opportunities include the development of a 200-acre MediPark as part of the Manchester Enterprise Zone to accommodate the world’s leading healthcare players.
Manchester is home to more working Nobel Prize-winners than Oxford and Cambridge combined. It’s the city of choice for more than 200 biomedical companies.
As a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, Manchester attracts world-class medical talent. The University of Manchester is one of Europe’s leading centres for health science, ranking number one for cancer, dentistry, nursing and midwifery and produces more than 5,000 medical graduates each year.
We have particular strengths in tissue repair and wound healing; clinical trials capabilities; neuroscience research; and bioinformatics. Manchester offers opportunities to invest in accelerating innovation, collaboration and partnering with research and delivery, through to commercialisation.
To support these and other health developments, the world’s most advanced MediPark is being built next to Manchester Airport. It will provide a home for new medical technology, biomedical, medical device and pharmaceutical companies in a unique setting and Enterprise Zone incentives.
