Our 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.

JLABS @ NYC is a 30,000-square foot facility, located at the NYGC in the heart of Soho. JLABS @ NYC lays the groundwork for innovative, early-stage companies by enabling and empowering the best in science and technology with a no-strings-attached model.

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.
