About us

Who we are

UCLB is part of UCL, one of the world’s leading universities. We make sure the exceptional ideas and innovations generated by researchers at UCL and its associated hospitals – University College London Hospitals, Moorfields Eye Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and the Royal Free London Hospital – have real world impact, creating benefits for society and bringing revenue back to the university.

UCLB’s track record of success includes over £1.5bn raised in investment for UCL spinouts, bringing pioneering technologies from the laboratory to market.

Every day, we’re enabling academic entrepreneurs to tackle global challenges, from energy and engineering to healthcare and the environment.

We’re proud to be part of the Office of the UCL Vice-Provost (Research, Innovation & Global Engagement) – RIGE.

UCLB – Our impact

As drivers of innovation, we use our expertise to commercialise the exceptional ideas of UCL researchers, to benefit society and the economy.
