Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab Opening Ceremony
On November 3, Harvard celebrated the opening of the Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab. It is a marker of Harvard’s commitment to both the Life Sciences and to the Harvard Innovation Labs ecosystem. The mission of the Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab is to provide Harvard students, faculty, post docs, and alumni interested in biotech, pharma, and other life sciences-related fields with a fully equipped wet lab environment and resources they need to take their ventures to the next stage of development. Made possible by Judy (MBA 1983) and Stephen (MBA 1982) Pagliuca, the Life Lab’s curated community will foster connections among industry, investor, government, and academic stakeholders. The Life Lab is already home to 17 companies across eight Harvard schools. Erin McCafferty attended the event seeing the incredible work areas and labs that President Drew Faust spoke of so highly, saying, “Life in short will be better because of this space.”
