The Sir Michael Uren Hub

The Sir Michael Uren Hub is an exciting new development at the heart of Imperial’s White City campus. The 13-storey building will comprise state-of-the-art laboratory and office facilities for the next generation of biomedical engineering research across technology and application themes.  Housing interdisciplinary research initiatives from across Imperial’s departments and faculties, the building will drive clinical translation of MedTech innovation through integrated clinical and imaging facilities and by virtue of its proximity to the Hammersmith Hospital campus. Commercial translation will be promoted by the adjacent Translation and Innovation Hub (IHUB).

Progress on construction - January 2020

Building work is now complete and users are moving in.

BME hub at sunset January 2020The Sir Michael Uren Hub has been made possible by a £40 million gift from Imperial alumnus Michael Uren OBE and his Foundation: the most generous donation in the history of the College. This visionary gift has laid the foundations for an unprecedented investment in facilities dedicated to biomedical engineering research.  Imperial and the IBME are now actively evaluating opportunities for pioneering research initiatives which will occupy the building and benefit from this unique infrastructure and a revolutionary expansion in the field at the College.
