UCL Faculty of Medical Sciences



An entrepreneurial culture is embedded within UCL. It’s in our staff, students and graduates. In our startup incubator, the training we provide, and our entrepreneurship hub, BaseKX. Our spinout companies - many in the medical space - have attracted more external investment than those of any other UK university (£579m)*. We are one of only a few universities with an Office of the Vice-Provost (Enterprise) to promote entrepreneurship.

Gene therapy spinouts receive record investment

In 2018, four UCL gene therapy companies raised an astounding £438 million. UCL Business (UCLB), the commercialisation arm of UCL and part of UCL Innovation & Enterprise, helped launch the spinouts.
