Citylabs 2.0

Citylabs 2.0 forms part of a new world-class hub pushing the boundaries of healthcare diagnostics and treatments.

The 92,000 sq ft campus forms part of a new national hub for precision medicine and data analytical businesses, accelerating innovation and translating brilliant research into new healthcare diagnostics and treatments.

Located opposite the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, this world-class health innovation and precision medicine campus will be occupied by Global life sciences and diagnostics company QIAGEN for its Global Centre of Excellence for Precision Medicine.

Designed by Sheppard Robson, we worked on Citylabs 2.0 with BuroFour, Gardiner & Theobald, Hilson Moran, Arup and Planit.
