About Janssen Labs
Janssen Labs is a life science innovation center located at the Janssen Research & Development West Coast Research Center in San Diego. The facility provides emerging companies many of the advantages of being in a big company, without the capital investment. Janssen Labs offers singular bench tops, modular wet lab units and office space on a short-term basis, allowing companies to pay only for the space that they need, with an option to quickly expand when they have the resources to do so. Companies occupying space at Janssen Labs also have access to core research labs hosting specialized capital equipment and shared administrative areas. Operational support is provided by Prescience International, an external firm that specializes in the set-up and operations of life science innovation centers. Janssen Labs is an open innovation model, and the agreement for space does not grant Janssen any stake in the companies, nor will the companies have a guaranteed future affiliation with Janssen.http://www.janssenlabs.com
