LBIC, the London BioScience Innovation Centre is a hub providing laboratory and office facilities for biotech start-up companies based in Central London.

History[edit]

LBIC, the London Bioscience Innovation Centre, was created in 2001 as a response to the shortage of accommodation for life sciences activity in Central London.[1] It received funding from the London Development Agency to fulfil its objective of developing a commercial life sciences cluster in London.[2] LBIC is owned by the Royal Veterinary College and is housed at its campus in Camden.[3] Its close relationship and proximity with the Royal Veterinary College facilitate research collaborations.
