Yourgene Health labs
Yourgene Health works in partnership with international leaders in the field of DNA technology to advance diagnostic science and enable the delivery of genomic medicine. Yourgene primarily develops, manufactures, and commercialises simple and accurate molecular diagnostic solutions for reproductive health, precision medicine and infectious diseases. Yourgene Health has expanded within the tech and life science specialist’s network twice in a matter of years, growing from a team of two to the 200-strong business it is today.


The business initially established itself within the Greenheys building at Manchester Science Park in 2014 with just two desks before quickly expanding into an 8,000 sq ft space in Citylabs 1.0. The growing life science business had further expansion requirements, which saw the team grow to occupy 22,000 sq ft across Citylabs 1.0 and the Manchester Science Park campus. In consolidating its space into one headquarters, Yourgene Health now occupies the entirety of the Skelton House building at Manchester Science Park.
Yourgene Health now benefits from being wholly located in one of the UK’s most established life sciences and tech communities – Manchester Science Park – home to 150 fast-growing start-ups and scale-up science and tech businesses. The 160 employees based out of the new headquarters will also have access to the wider facilities and benefits available across the campus.
These include indoor and outdoor meeting and events spaces, 100GB ultra-fast internet on Manchester’s ‘The Loop’ fibre network, showers, a gym studio offering classes such as yoga, spin and boxercise, an on-site cafe, cycle storage and Amazon lockers. An extensive programme of health and wellbeing programmes and social events also supplements these facilities. 
Manchester Science Park is located in the heart of Europe’s largest clinical, academic campus – neighbouring the University of Manchester and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. The campus is undergoing a masterplan transformation to expand to 1m sq ft and offer additional world-class facilities for science and tech businesses. The latest phase of this expansion opened in July 2022 with a £21m, 91,000 sq ft new hub and maker space for Industry 4.0 tech businesses, Base.
