Earlier this fall, Contraline moved its operations from the University of Virginia School of Medicine into its new headquarters in Charlottesville, called “ContraLab.” ContraLab is a 2200 sq. ft. office and laboratory space located at 1216 Harris Street. The laboratory space will be used primarily for research and product development including synthesizing and characterizing its novel vas-occlusive male contraceptive, Echo-V. Contraline will continue to maintain a close relationship with the University of Virginia, where small animal trials and clinical research are taking place.
At a Grand Opening in December, Contraline officially dedicated the lab “The Herr Lab” after the company’s co-founder and biotech community member, Dr. John Herr, who passed away earlier in the year.
