Medical School offers office space
Date: August 28, 2006

A limited number of biotech companies have the chance to rent office space in the brand-new John A. Burns School of Medicine in Kaka’ako under an innovative program called BioSPOTS (Bioscience Space Program with Offices and Technology Systems)

“This is an opportunity for emerging biotech entrepreneurs to collaborate with Hawaii’s top medical researchers in our state-of-the-art facilities,” says Lawrence Burgess, MD, Director of JABSOM’s Telehealth Research Institute and Program Coordinator.

The space is provided under the terms of a unique $3 million federal grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA), U.S. Department of Commerce, that helped pay for equipment to support research and training at the Medical School. The federal program is intended to attract private capital investment and create high-paying jobs in the field of biotechnology in Hawaii.

Leasable space in the second floor of the Medical Education Building consists of 8 offices and 8 cubicles, with each company allowed to rent a maximum of two offices and two cubicles. Cost for a single office and cubicle combination (about 160 square feet) is estimated at $400 per month. Access to lab space will also be possible for certain collaborative projects.

Priority will be given to companies conducting joint biotechnology research and development programs with the UH or Medical School, and which have the potential to expand or bring new bioscience business and jobs to Hawaii.

Interested companies should contact Dr. Burgess at lburgess@hawaii.edu or telephone 692-1080 for more information.
