University of Cambridge

A 21st century model of applied research and entrepreneurship in biotechnology


The University’s Institute of Biotechnology has developed an innovative, internationally recognised, model that integrates multidisciplinary research, business training and commercial exploitation. This has led to the formation of a number of promising spin-off companies that have brought a range of patented products to market including next generation glucose sensors and new drugs for treatment of cancer. The activity is underpinned by a uniquely structured Masters course in Bioscience Enterprise.
