Harvard launches a new incubator for biotech startups


The Blavatnik Life Lab, a 10,000-square-foot laboratory co-working space in the Longwood Medical Area, will formally launch later this week with its first cohort of five startups. Unlike the technology-focused Wyss Institute and the Pagliuca Life Lab, which dabbles in new drugs as well as devices, the Blavatnik Life Lab is all in on therapeutics. It’s also housed within Harvard Medical School, which Mark Namchuk, the school’s executive director of therapeutics translation, hopes will foster connections between business-focused entrepreneurs and scientists who have traditionally operated in academic settings.
