BIOVIA and its predecessors have been based in Cambridge since 1989. The original Cambridge operation was a startup software company that emerged from the University's Materials Science Department. The company retains close ties with the local academic and high tech community.

BIOVIA moved to its new European Headquarters at the Cambridge Science Park in May 2002. The location houses around 150 people. Research and development is focused on simulation and informatics software for materials research and on cheminformatics. Service, sales, marketing, and administrative teams are also located here.
