As the first JLABS to open outside the United States, JLABS @ Toronto joins a network of life science facilities that are based throughout the United States in San Diego (the flagship JLABS), San Francisco, South San Francisco, Boston and Houston. These facilities are home to over 100 early-stage companies advancing pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer and digital health programs.
JLABS @ Toronto supports over 50 resident companies and has over 20 alumni companies within its network. Companies advancing consumer products, therapeutics, medical devices, health tech and cross sector focuses make up the vibrant JLABS @ Toronto resident and alumni community. The current resident demographic reflects the region’s leadership in the fields of artificial intelligence, regenerative medicine, oncology and vision care.
JLABS @ Toronto is the JLABS for Canada. With 43% of resident companies coming from outside the GTA, from places like Halifax, Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary, we provide a second “home-base” for R&D and management teams. JLABS @ Toronto also brings external and internal Johnson & Johnson expertise to over 15 cities across the country through educational programming, webinars and speaking engagements.
The 40,000-square foot facility includes cutting-edge, modular and scalable lab space, state-of-the-art equipment, with access to scientific, industry and capital funding experts. The space also features JLABS’ inaugural device and digital prototype lab that provides entrepreneurs with access to highly specialized tools and skills building programs to design and develop smart health technologies.
