The so-called New Haven Innovation Labs will be a 7,630 square-foot facility will be located inside the Pierce Laboratory building at 290 Congress Ave. in New Haven. The laboratory is right in the midst of the campus for Yale University’s School of Medicine. The New Haven Innovation Labs space will include a mix of private and shared wet labs and offices.
Dr. John Geibel, director of the Pierce Laboratory, said the new lab space “blends nicely with the longstanding commitment to design, develop and implement new technologies and innovations for the betterment of mankind.” Pierce Laboratory officials worked with the BioCT trade group to get its plans off the ground.
“Tenants will have access to the scientists within the Pierce Laboratory, giving them additional chances for discussions,” Pieribone said in a statement. BioCT successfully launched a wet lab incubator, The Innovation Commons, in Groton, five years ago. Officials with the group will manage the New Haven incubator.
Vincent Pieribone, the director emeritus of the Pierce Laboratory, said the New Haven Innovation Labs “will be fully outfitted and ready for companies to move in and get right to work.” “We are very excited to create a novel space that can support startup companies that arise from the Yale University School of Medicine community along with other startups looking to create a footprint in New Haven and Connecticut,” Geibel said in a statement.
Hocevar said the No. 1 need “is and has been infrastructure/lab space to support all the phases of growth from startup to graduation.” “The bio industry is growing rapidly in Connecticut, thanks in large part to the innovations coming out of Yale and startup success in New Haven and the surrounding area,” Dawn Hocevar, president and chief executive officer of BioCT, said in a statement.
