Tufts University has developed Tufts Launchpad | BioLabs, a world-class biotech incubator to help high-potential, early-stage innovators in the life sciences. Tufts Launchpad is a 15,000-square-foot, fully managed facility with 50 ready-to-use lab benches suitable for bench-on-demand. This premier space provides entrepreneurs—including Tufts faculty and students—with the resources needed to accelerate the development of their companies towards commercialization.
This initiative supports the university’s T10 Strategic Plan — and is a perfect complement to the expertise and leadership of Tufts University in the life sciences and entrepreneurial spaces. Tufts is #11 in the Nature Index for innovation rankings among the nation’s schools and is ranked by the Carnegie Foundation at its highest classification for degree-granting colleges and universities.
Tufts Launchpad | BioLabs is an incubator space with top-of-the-line equipment and amenities. Tufts Launchpad also offers access to Tufts University’s core facilities and services, including but not limited to Tufts Comparative Medicine Services (32,000-square foot animal facilities, histology core, large animal surgical center, small animal imaging core, etc.), sequencing, mass spectrometry, DNA, peptide synthesis, confocal microscopy, and flow cytometry.
Tufts Launchpad is a fully equipped, coworking and shared lab space that provides startups with the infrastructure and equipment they need to build their biotechs.
