Have your say

A new building at a science park in the Capital has secured its first tenant.

The Edinburgh BioQuarter £24 million bio-incubator and multi-occupancy building, known as Nine, has secured Edinburgh-based life sciences company Fios Genomics as its first tenant.

Scottish Enterprise life sciences director Rhona Allison said: “I’m delighted to welcome Fios Genomics to our new facility, Nine.

“This flagship initiative is one of the cornerstones of Scotland’s life sciences sector’s aspirations for growth and the decision by Fios Genomics to locate here demonstrates the real value the expertise and capabilities at Edinburgh BioQuarter bring to enabling cutting edge companies to thrive and grow.”

Towards the end of last year, Nine was completed to shell and core condition and it is now nearing the end of its internal fit-out.
