14th July 2020, 3:45 pm

This morning we’re very pleased to announce that the next phase in creating a world-class health innovation and precision medicine campus in Manchester has reached a new milestone – Citylabs 2.0 has obtained Practical Completion.

The £25m, 92,000 sq ft Citylabs 2.0 will create and support up to 1,500 jobs – adding almost £150m to Manchester’s economy over the next decade, and is part of a £95m expansion to the campus. Work on Citylabs 2.0 has continued throughout the Covid-19 pandemic enabling it to complete with minimal disruption. It will be joined by Citylabs 4.0 which received planning consent earlier this year, adding a further 1,200 jobs when it completes in 2022.

The Citylabs campus is part of our joint venture with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), the UK’s largest NHS provider Trust, and Citylabs 2.0 will be home to life sciences and diagnostics company QIAGEN’s Global Centre of Excellence for Precision Medicine.
