Larger than Life Science – Accelerating Early Discovery Research


Larger Than Life Science is a free event series open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for biotech, life science, and healthcare innovators.

Navigating Challenges and Mitigating Risk

Building infrastructure to support your research is expensive, time-consuming, and may not be the right approach for early research work. What are the alternatives? This panel will discuss flexible options available to researchers here in the Bay Area to support emerging or well-established biotech and pharmaceutical companies looking to expand while staying nimble, and academics looking for low-cost solutions to help them start their biotech journey.

 Panelists will discuss:

  • Challenges in finding full-service, turn-key vivarium space
  • Controlling costs while accelerating discovery and development
  • Tapping into regulatory and technical expertise
