​Dundee is home to one of the most exciting life sciences clusters in the UK, with world-class companies, universities and research institutes all within a 3 mile radius. Our companies have research links to all the organisations in the Top 10 Pharmaceutical Companies 2017.

​Both of Dundee's universities, the University of Dundee and Abertay University undertake world-class research activities and collaborations while Dundee & Angus College offers our industrial partners customised training for the life sciences sector.

​The Academic Health Science Partnership in Tayside (AHSP) is the first formal Academic Health Science Partnership in Scotland, bringing together the delivery of healthcare services, education, quality improvement and research to improve the health and well-being of the population.

BioDundee was established in 1997 as a partnership to promote the growth of life sciences in the Dundee area and brings together the public, private, academic and third sector organisations. Its purpose is to build the strength of the Life Sciences and Healthcare sectors in Dundee and the wider Tayside region internally through: partnership working, networking, knowledge and skills development, while externally promoting and positioning Dundee to relevant audiences as fundamentally contributing to Scotland's world-class life science and healthcare sectors.
