Sixteen health care focussed startups have settled inside the new Harlem Biospace, on W. 127th St.
The Bloomberg administration contributed $626,000 and partnered with Columbia University biomedical engineering professor Sam Sia for the balance of the funding.
Companies include an allergy-testing company, which uses a simple cheek swab to analyze a sneeze; a pharmaceutical drug maker that’s trying to compel cancer cells to “commit suicide,” and inventors developing an MRI-styled device for small animals, Invivo Analytics, which uses imaging to study how diseases ravage mice during pharmaceutical testing.
The facility includes access to a laboratory outfitted with advanced equipment to grow cells, test tissue and analyze toxins; free legal advice from biotech law firm Wilmer Hale; access to topnotch tools and mentors.
