Business incubator for biotech and medtech startups


OnExamination hailed during BMJ Group India visit

Doctors in India can now subscribe to one of the world’s most trusted providers of medical information and education following the opening in New Delhi of BMJ Group’s Indian office.

Two senior executives from BMJ Group are visiting India this week to explain how doctors can benefit from the evidence based medical information which is already provided to doctors in the UK, other European countries, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, China and the Middle East.

The trip will also be used to promote OnExamination, a medtech company originally founded at Cardiff Medicentre that was acquired by BMJ Group in December 2007. OnExamination provides training and examination practice for most post graduate medical disciplines, including Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) in the UK and online examination preparation services for PGMEE in India.

Notes to editors

About Cardiff Medicentre

Cardiff Medicentre is a dedicated incubator for biotech and medtech startups. The facility is set in the grounds of the University of Wales Hospital and is a neighbour to Cardiff University’s School of Medicine.

Established in 1992, Cardiff Medicentre is a joint venture between Cardiff Council, Cardiff University, the Welsh Government and Cardiff & Vale University Health Board. It was the first incubator of its kind in the UK and now provides 32 units of high quality office and lab space accommodation ranging from 284 sq ft to 1,045 sq ft. Low-cost desk leasing facilities are also available to encourage entrepreneurs to enter the Cardiff Medicentre community while writing business plans and raising finance.

Tenants at Cardiff Medicentre benefit from specialist support in establishing and growing their businesses. Their aim, and the aim of the Cardiff Medicentre management team, is graduation – the process of tenant businesses outgrowing the incubation facilities and moving into their own follow-on space, or being acquired.
