“Ideaya Biosciences was jump started by accessing the lab space and shared equipment at the ShangPharma incubator. Key for our programs was the availability of a fully functional chemistry lab, and analytical equipment, to support small molecule drug discovery. This is in addition to a tissue culture lab and a suite of other biology capabilities. Ample office space and meeting rooms accompanies the labs and provides what you need to get off to a successful start.”
-Michael Dillon Ph.D., Head of Drug Discovery, Ideaya Biosciences
“AMT moved to ShangPharma’s wet lab facilities in South San Francisco as one of the first companies to move in after we outgrew our first incubator. Planning and executing the move was a straightforward process and with the support of Sarah and her team, we moved into a high quality, newly-built space with several shared equipment options to allow us to continue to generate data without investing heavily in additional infrastructure. Our team almost tripled while at the ShangPharma site at a critical juncture for our company.”
-Tahir Mahmood Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer, Applied Molecular Transport (AMT)
