The Centre For Life exhibition and the LIFElab Education Resource Centre's mission is to enable the public to explore the key areas of new life sciences and the significance of DNA through use of hands on interpretative techniques, 'learning laboratories', state-of-the-art technology and an impressive combination of 3-D audio-visual wizardry.

LIFE has also proven to be an extremely popular venue for use within the corporate market -LIFE Conference and Banqueting. The Mezzanine Suite within the attraction offers a unique corporate entertainment venue in a distinctive setting. If more conventional venues Lifeare preferred, the site houses eight additional purpose-built conference suites and rooms in the Conference Centre and adjacent Bioscience Centre. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, each suite provides world-class facilities designed to suit intensive, all-day events.

Newcastle University's Institute of Human Genetics, Newcastle NHS Trust's Reproductive Medicine Clinic, PEALS, the Institute of Bioethics, and a host of Biotechnology companies operating on site, also make the Centre truly unique as a 'Science Village'.

The centre continues to develop and expand. A 652 space multi-storey car park opened in September 2002, and next door, work is well underway on the development of a vibrant mixed-use scheme featuring the North East's largest hotel - a 3 Star Jury's Inn, office space, residential accommodation and bars and restaurants. The buildings will surround a central Plaza that will be attractively paved to create a square where people will be able to sit, enjoy a drink or dine.
