Let It Snow
Yesterday, we announced several new initiatives that will bolster NYC’s life sciences industry: the City of New York Early-Stage Life Sciences Funding Initiative and the new Mount Sinai Institute of Technology.
- New York City is committing $100 Million to an early-stage Life Sciences Funding Initiative. This fund will accelerate the growth of 15-20 breakthrough life science ventures by 2020.
- A partnership between Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) will create new academic pathways for a strong biotech talent base here in NYC. Construction for a new Mount Sinai Institute of Technology focused on tech-based biomedical disciplines will begin later this month in existing buildings on the Upper East Side/East Harlem campus.
- We also celebrated the recent opening of Harlem Biospace (pictured above in a bustling Harlem). 20 emerging life science companies have already started working out of the space and contributing to an ongoing revitalization in Harlem. Harlem Biospace joins our citywide network of 16 current and forthcoming incubators, providing up to 20 emerging life science companies with affordable wet-lab space.
We are thrilled by these developments and look forward to seeing NYC continue to expand as a premier capital of innovation in life sciences.
