US life sciences firm, Mapi, has doubled its UK presence after it has taken space at Imperial College’s new innovation hub at White City.

The health research and commercialisation services company has moved its UK company, Mapi Life Sciences UK, into the new 23-acre research and innovation plot as part of Imperial’s Translation and Innovation Hub.

The new centre, dubbed the I-HUB, is hoping to become a melting pot of academia and business, with flexible office and lab space bringing together the university’s world-class scientists, engineers and medics with local and international businesses wanting to turn research into new products.

In this regard, Mapi would seem like a good fit for the new centre, with its health research and commercialisation efforts within the life sciences sphere singling it out as one of the global leaders in the field, having worked on patient-centered healthcare methodologies for over 40 years.

Its new home will plant the firm right in the middle of Imperial’s public health, molecular sciences and biomedical research facilities, and will prove a boon to Imperial’s efforts to foster a vibrant research community at the site.
