The BioEscalator, Oxford University's Biotech incubator, provides lab space and entrepreneurial support for high growth startups.
Oxford’s Old Road Campus is home to many of the University’s world-class institutes and departments, with 8500 staff and students tackling the full range of medical health challenges across the world. The BioEscalator builds on this success by nurturing early-stage biotech companies through to sustainability, by facilitating collaboration with NHS and academics, to build a community of entrepreneurial medical scientists and innovators.
The passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
The BioEscalator expresses its deepest sympathies to HM King Charles III and the Royal family following the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
"While we have faced challenges before, this one is different. This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal. We will succeed - and that success will belong to every one of us." - Televised address on April 5, 2020, after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our focus is on getting more discoveries out of the lab and into patient care by providing fully equipped shared facilities allowing your company to start innovating from the moment you move in.
