Eli Lilly and Co Opens Shared Innovation Lab in San Francisco
Eli Lilly and Company has opened its first shared innovation lab, located in South San Francisco, designed to support the discovery of innovative medicines through collaboration with local biotech companies. Lilly says that Lilly Gateway Labs will provide biotech companies with direct access to Lilly scientists, team members, and executives.
With over 65,000 square feet of space, Lilly Gateway Labs offers 32 flexibly designed private lab modules. Each module includes lab space for six to eight scientists, office space, and work stations. The space was designed with open areas for collaboration, where scientific meetings and programming will be hosted by Lilly for companies at the site as well as the broader Bay Area scientific community.
Companies who work in Lilly Gateway Labs will have the opportunity to collaborate with Lilly on projects of mutual interest, participate in shared learning forums with Lilly experts and partners, and have the potential for financial investment from Lilly, venture funds, or both.
