Game Changer: The Role of Real Estate in the Growth of a Life Science Ecosystem

Tuesday, Nov 29, 2022
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


Roundtable Discussion:

  • How and on what timeline are CvilleBioHub and UVA working to bring more lab and manufacturing capacity to Charlottesville?

  • What is “Incubator Lab Space” and how does it work? Why does a shortage of lab space remain a constraint on local biotech start-up formation and retention?

  • How do real estate and infrastructure needs evolve as a biotech company grows?

  • What lessons can be learned observing biotech ecosystems in Maryland and Boston, and what can they tell us about the potential impact of increasing lab capacity in Charlottesville?
