Signs lead the way to a healthier Scotland

New signs have been unveiled at Edinburgh BioQuarter to help guide people around the leading life science campus.

BioQuarter is home to Edinburgh Medical School as well as leading University research centres, including the Queen’s Medical Research Institute and the Centre for Regenerative Medicine, co-located with the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh teaching hospital.

Alongside these institutions is a growing number of young and established life sciences companies.

Five-year plan

The signage project is the latest marker in an ambitious five-year growth plan for Edinburgh BioQuarter, which is already one of Europe’s largest life sciences clusters.

Around 7,500 people work at BioQuarter each day, with hundreds of thousands of visitors welcomed to the site each year.

The new signs are designed to help students, staff, patients and visitors navigate the 100-acre site.


Edinburgh Bioquarter is a partnership between the University and the City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian and Scottish Enterprise.

The partners aim to establish a site that is attractive to entrepreneurs and investors, helping to grow businesses, create jobs and continue delivering economic benefits to Edinburgh, Scotland and the UK.

The creation of a focal point where world-class research, innovation and entrepreneurship come together to advance patient care is both trail-blazing and very rewarding indeed. The new signage will help to cement this in people’s minds.
