Teesside University unveils new £35 million science, health and medical facility

Teesside University has announced plans for a new £35m central science and medical building which will provide cutting-edge new laboratories for the sciences and clinical subjects.

The new BIOS building will be a high-quality, state-of-the-art new facility at the heart of Teesside University’s Middlesbrough campus. Supporting the University’s thriving School of Health & Life Sciences, BIOS will house four floors of laboratory space for subjects including anatomy, imaging, microbiology, chemistry, earth sciences and food sciences.

The development includes specialist equipment to enable new and interactive forms of learning for core health and allied health provision, including a growing postgraduate medical offer. A key feature will be a range of new life sciences laboratories which will support pharmaceutical science, human biology and biomedicine.

Work on BIOS is set to get underway in August 2022 with completion due next autumn, in time for the 2023/24 academic year.

Vice-chancellor and chief executive of Teesside University, Professor Paul Croney OBE, said: “The global pandemic has provided many challenges, but it also highlighted the critical importance of health, medicine and the sciences. This facility will enable us to grow and enhance our provision in these key areas, aligning perfectly with the skills needs of the region and country, and delivering against the priorities of our partners across the healthcare sector.”

Professor Tim Thompson, dean of Teesside University’s School of Health and Life Sciences, added: “This is an incredibly exciting development for our School and for the University. BIOS will help us to provide more modern, flexible and digitally-enabled learning spaces to help train the next generation of health professionals. It will also allow us to bring together delivery of health and human sciences subjects, providing a holistic view of the healthcare-bioscience ecosystem.”
