City College of New York will open a life sciences incubator at the Taystee Lab Building in the Manhattanville Factory District

CCNY Will Open Life Sciences Incubator in Manhattanville

The Adams administration on Wednesday awarded $26.6 million to further spur the growth of New York City’s life sciences industry. Through its $1-billion LifeSci NYC initiative, the city is awarding $15 million to the City College of New York (CCNY) and $11.6 million to the Mount Sinai Health System. Both awards will support the construction of new facilities. 

CCNY will open the “City Innovations Collaborative,” an incubator supporting commercial and academic life sciences innovation and research under one roof at Janus Property Company’s Taystee Lab Building in West Harlem’s Manhattanville Factory District. With 36,000 square feet, the collaborative will offer early-stage life sciences companies wet and dry lab space for the development of new medications and medical devices. 

Mount Sinai will build the Comprehensive Center for Surgical Innovation, a 7,000-square-foot surgical research facility with an imaging and rapid prototyping facility on the Mount Sinai West hospital campus.
