Coworking Lab Space and Biotech Incubator in New York City
Our JLABS @ NYC story:
JLABS @ NYC was launched as an initiative between Johnson & Johnson Innovation LLC, New York State, and the New York Genome Center (NYGC). We opened our doors to 21 residents in June of 2018. The long-time capital of finance, fashion, art, and tech, New York has also emerged as a life science powerhouse, benefitting from New York State’s $620 Million Life Science Initiative.
JLABS @ NYC is a 30,000-square foot facility, located at the NYGC in the heart of Soho in Lower Manhattan. JLABS @ NYC lays the groundwork for early-stage companies by enabling and empowering the best innovators in life science and biotech with a no-strings-attached business model.
With the JPALS program life science and biotech companies can be mentored by world-class scientists, and business leaders to help them reach their goals.
Today, 35+ resident companies are part of the JLABS @ NYC family. JLABS @ NYC provides these early-stage companies with the unique resources and support needed to accelerate innovation of biotech, pharmaceutical, medical device, and consumer health solutions.
JLABS @ NYC includes dedicated space for BLUE KNIGHT™, a collaboration between Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). Blue Knight aims to stimulate innovation and incubation of technologies that improve health security and response through companies focused on public health threats and emerging infectious diseases.
