We are passionate about making our city a major biotech hub.
Biotech Connection Los Angeles (BCLA) is a project of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Community Partners. We are an organization run by academics and biotech professionals from all over Los Angeles. We bring academia and the biotech industry together to drive innovation forward.
We consist of students and post docs from different research areas, as well as young industry professionals, but we are all sharing the common goal of improving and facilitating communication between biotech industry and academia.
Our advisory board includes BCLA's co-founders and professionals from academia and industry, who help to direct BCLA towards better serving the biotech community and creating more possibilities for bioscience entrepreneurship in Los Angeles.

The Bridge Institute
Building upon the university’s Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience Initiative, the Bridge Institute unites artists, engineers, scientists and physicians from USC, bridging the molecules of life to improve the human condition.
Imagine a world where scientific data is released from the confines of its originating discipline, allowing us to better understand, integrate and advance knowledge.
BioscienceLA’s mission is to ensure that Los Angeles has a collaborative, well-coalesced ecosystem that encompasses all aspects of the Southern California life sciences cluster – biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, medical diagnostics, bioinformatics, healthcare IT, medtech, digital health, and more.
