Harlem Biospace, developed with support from the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), has joined BIA/NYS as our newest member. Situated in a mixed-use zone of West Harlem close to CUNY City College and Columbia University but not owned by either one, Harlem Biospace was designed to serve up to 20 biotechnology, biomaterials, and medical-device/technology startups with work desks, wet-lab benches, and access to shared wet-laboratory resources.
The incubator seeks both university-affiliated and independent entrepreneurs as tenant/clients. The principal of Harlem Biospace is Dr. Sam Sia, a faculy member in biomedical engineering at Columbia who has a strong track record of entrepreneurship and startup formation. The facility is managed by Matt Owens. For more information, please see the collection of current news on the Harlem Biospace website and also the NYCEDC news release from last year.
We warmly welcome Harlem Biospace to membership. It is our third new member this month.
