JLL recently expanded its national life science platform with the addition of Thomas Burrus as an associate vice president focusing on business development in the life science and healthcare sector in the New York metropolitan area.
Burrus will work under the leadership of John Cahill, senior vice president of JLL’s Northeast Life Sciences Practice Group. Burrus joins JLL from Newmark, where he served in a real estate advisory capacity nationally and worked with leading life science tenants in the New York metropolitan area.
“New York’s life science industry is emerging as a contender to the nation’s established hubs,” said Cahill. “As the supply of lab space continues to grow, and the commercialization in cell and gene therapy, customized medicine and translational medicine pick up speed, Tom will have a pivotal role in our work with innovative life science companies who demand best-in-class real estate solutions.”
