Property Description:

The CoLaborator’s design is a flexible, open floor plan with 6,000 square feet of shared, rented lab space designed to house startup life-science companies whose technology platforms, drug targets or drug candidates may align with Bayer’s interests. The environment fosters opportunities for idea exchange by bringing researchers together in a common space.

It also fosters interaction with Bayer by being housed in the same building as Bayer’s US Innovation Center – the North American center of research for this organization. The goal is to develop partnerships between Bayer and the startup companies, bringing forward experts from wherever they sit in the global organization into contact with the startup companies.

The CoLaborator includes basic equipment for life science startups to quickly begin putting their ideas to the test. Bayer support includes Environmental Health & Safety and Biosafety licenses, and access to nearby UCSF core services such as imaging, bioinformatics, and proteomics. Partnering with Bayer can also provide access to the global expertise and equipment of Bayer’s research network.
