Cardiff Medicentre

The Medicentre is a business incubator hosted at the University Hospital of Wales and borne of a collaboration between Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and Cardiff University. 

About the Medicentre

Offering an ideal first base for biotech and medtech startups, the Medicentre situated at University Hospital of Wales has a long-standing heritage of attracting some of the industry’s most exciting innovators to Cardiff. 

The Medicentre was established in 1992 as a hub that provides business support services and high quality office and laboratory accommodation, to enable new biotech and medtech companies to accelerate growth. 

Some of the companies that began as fledgling businesses in the Medicentre have gone on to establish substantial operations in independent follow-on facilities. Some have been acquired by larger concerns for multi-million pound sums, and others continue to raise substantial amounts of venture capital as they carry on growing.
