We have a diverse and highly experienced network of highly motivated, dedicated life science experts across our Campus community, plus a huge extended network within the wider Cambridge cluster as well as access to life science investors, strong relationships with life science organisations and much more. Connecting people is an important part of what we do and the various Campus events across the year aim to do just that. From the Babraham Investor Conference to the Accelerate@Babraham start-up competition our events enable interaction, connection and collaboration.

The Cambridge Building

The Cambridge building, at the heart of the Campus, was specifically designed to enable collaboration and facilitate connection. The restaurant and café seat over 200 people, and offers a high-quality full breakfast and lunch service through our catering partner BaxterStorey; and is an ideal space to meet, grab a coffee, or a bite to eat and share ideas. The first floor of the Cambridge Building holds our two state-of-the-art meeting rooms and the Petersfield Lecture Theatre, which can hold just over 200 people. Many internal lectures and external events are held here throughout the year, from investor conferences and networking functions to lunch and learn seminars. The Cambridge Building is fully accessible, including a lift to the first floor and accessible parking. We also have hearing loops in both of our meeting rooms and the Petersfield Lecture Theatre.
