The Biosphere is the first of its kind for Newcastle and a testament to the world-class expertise in life sciences and healthcare within the city. This specialist facility is tailored to the commercialisation of life sciences and innovation, research and development in the North East of England's regional and economic capital. We offer high-quality biology and chemistry laboratories, Grade A offices and conference space in Newcastle city centre, just 10-minutes' walk to Newcastle Central Station and 25 minutes' drive to Newcastle International Airport.

We also offer a bespoke programme of business support, including expert advice and industry knowledge to help businesses to grow and develop - supporting the journey from world-class research to the commercialisation of products and services. Our occupiers also benefit from active links to Newcastle University, including the neighbouring National Innovation Centres for Ageing and Data, and a lab equipment and consumables purchasing scheme.

Our dedicated floor of Grade A office suites is exclusively for science-based companies and those providing appropriate ancillary services.

The Biosphere is based on Newcastle Helix, a landmark 24-acre hybrid city quarter in the centre of Newcastle, built for international tech and science businesses, the local community and residents. It is an exemplar of sustainable urban development, which combines prestigious commercial and residential space with first-class research and education facilities in the heart of a flourishing city. Newcastle Helix is here to help us all live better lives. Easier, healthier, smarter and longer.

The Biosphere has secured significant funding through the current European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and North East Local Growth Fund (LGF) programmes, which help local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regeneration."
