    The Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab is a shared laboratory space for high-potential life sciences and biotech startups founded by Harvard faculty, alumni, students, and postdoctoral scholars. The 15,000-square-foot facility on Harvard's Allston campus is a fully-equipped and permitted laboratory and office space for early-stage companies and is adjacent to the Harvard i-lab and Launch Lab. A Life Lab membership includes a dedicated lab space for bench members as well as permits, waste handling, and all common lab equipment needed for life sciences research. Access to coworking space, conference rooms, and a kitchen is also included. The cost of benches, coworking desks, and the private lab suite is below market value. Benches are $2,500/month, which includes one coworking space membership. Each coworking space membership is $200/month. The cost of a private lab suite for a resident venture of up to six individuals is $15,000-$18,000/month.
