Health Technologies from Labs to Patient Care

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire is fast becoming a major centre for medical and healthcare technologies expertise. Our skilled people, our facilities, R&D and low cost base make this an ideal location for medical and healthcare companies.

Keele University and the Royal Stoke University Hospital are both respected for their research expertise in areas such as clinical trials, bioengineering and therapeutic stem cells and tissue engineering. The Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine combines the research activities of basic science and clinical academics working within the NHS at three hospital sites and the main campus at the University.

Keele University Science and Business Park offers a range of property options from lab space to design and build as well as support for accessing R&D. Companies already based on the Park include Cobra Biologics, a leading international contract manufacturing organisation of biologics and pharmaceuticals; and Erigal, part of Europe’s leading independent medical imaging specialist Alliance Medical.

Local hospitals include Royal Stoke University Hospital, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the country, that is undergoing a major £370 million investment programme that will enhance its partnership with Keele University with state-of-the-art facilities.
