Helping entrepreneurs help themselves

Our mission is to help entrepreneurs create successful life science companies, by providing high-quality space and facilities in the setting of a vibrant, self-starting community.

Enabling Awesome

Given the right environment, entrepreneurial scientists like you can change the world. Our job is to give you the right environment. We are dedicated to helping you reduce the time and money you need to prove your technology, build your team, find experts, and attract capital. Our incubator helps you get going quickly and inexpensively - biotech entrepreneurs have launched successful startups with little more than a credit card!

One Bench at a Time

In 2006 we developed a model to lower the costs of launching a biotech startup: make expensive resources in small quantities. This way startups get exactly what they want when they want it. You can rent one bench at a time and expand as you need to. Getting funding is one of the most important and challenging tasks for a life-science startup. We are constantly looking for creative ways to help.

    AMGEN Lunch Seminar Diane Wu, PhD and Poornima Parameswaran, PhD Co-Founders, Trace Genomics RSVP The Trace Genomics microbiome sequencing platform enables screening of disease-causing microbes and interpretation of millions of beneficial organisms in the soil. Their machine learning platform enables simple integration of soil microbiome information into with field management information to help farmers identify optimal management conditions that increase soil health and sustainability as well as crop yields. Their innovative technology has received notable media coverage in Forbes, TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, AgFunder, and Fast Company, and was most recently listed by Forbes as one of the 25 most innovative Ag Tech startups. About Diane Wu Diane Wu, PhD completed a BSc in Computer Science and Molecular Biology at SFU (Vancouver, Canada) and a PhD in Genetics at Stanford University. She was awarded a Stanford Graduate Fellowship and published her thesis on the cover of Nature Structural Molecular Biology, advised by Nobel Laureate Dr. Andrew Fire. Diane then joined the machine learning team at Palantir Technologies as one of their first data scientists, where she built predictive models for healthcare, merchandising, law enforcement, and fraud detection.
    About Poornima Parameswaran Poornima Parameswaran, PhD completed her BS in Molecular Biology at UT Austin, a PhD in Microbiology & Immunology at Stanford University with Nobel Laureate Dr. Andrew Fire, and her postdoctoral fellowship with MacArthur Fellow Dr. Eva Harris at UC Berkeley's school of Public Health, where she also worked with the Ministry of Health in Nicaragua. She has been an author on eleven publications (371+ citations), where she used NGS technologies in novel ways to address fundamental questions in pathogen-host interactions.
