A centre of vaccine excellence in the UK

We operate from a 74,000 square metre footprint facility and offer a broad spectrum of services, from pre-clinical activity to commercial supply of marketed vaccines, all under one roof. Exclusively focused on vaccines, we have the expertise and technology to identify and eradicate development and manufacturing problems before they arise.

If you are an academic or foundation research team, a small start-up or medium biotech, or a large multinational pharma, VMIC is here to help move your vaccine from discovery towards licensed product and into commercialisation, working with you at any stage in the development process.


We are building a UK centre of excellence in vaccine manufacturing, working with partners at every stage of the development process from early analytical work to full commercial scale fill and finish.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we were able to help develop and manufacture the Oxford/ AZ vaccine, and established a rapid national deployment centre for the UK – an incredible effort from all involved.
