About Us & Our Approach
Launched in April, 2014, by the Mayor of London and the three London Academic Health Science Centres (Imperial AHSC, King’s Health Partners and UCLPartners), MedCity is the life sciences organisation for London and the greater south east of England.
The agile, influential organisation is tasked with delivering economic growth through our diverse life sciences ecosystem in London and the Greater South East of England, through our close connections and networks regionally, nationally and internationally. Our ambition is for the life sciences cluster of London and the Greater South East of England to be the unequivocal place of choice for world-leading health and life sciences R&D, manufacture and commercialisation. To deliver this ambition we aim to amplify the strengths of the region. Our strong networks, connected across the region’s academic, research, industry, health and social care systems, mean we can act as a vital, independent convener across the sector. We work to connect industry with research organisations, facilitating, and supporting collaboration across all parts of the sector to turn innovations into commercial products and services. Our expert team can help growing companies find the right expertise, resources, infrastructure, places, and people, and provide support to understand the route to market and regulatory frameworks.
MedCity acts as a front door and navigator into the life sciences ecosystem for companies, investors and the life sciences real estate sector.
Connecting industry to the expertise, funding, infrastructure, places and people needed to grow or to operate successfully in the leading life sciences cluster in Europe.
