Admission fee:FREE


November 22, 2018

80 Wood Lane

Organised by Imperial College London’s Chemistry Department and Upstream (a partnership between College and Hammersmith and Fulham Council), the inaugural biotech showcase & meetup aims to encourage interaction and collaboration between businesses, academics and researchers.

This autumn, Chemistry became the first Department to move from Imperial College’s South Kensington campus to its new home at White City, taking up residence at the Molecular Science Research Hub (MSRH).

The MSRH brings together nearly 800 scientists, clinicians, engineers and business partners and houses the equipment and infrastructure to support a twenty-first century approach. Here, researchers from a range of backgrounds can address common challenges in areas such as energy, healthcare, and sustainability.

The showcase and meetup provides a unique opportunity to tour this spectacular building and meet Imperial College academics and researchers alongside businesses active within the biotech space.
