Through collaboration between Johnson & Johnson Innovation and the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3), Janssen will create a 5,000-square-foot lab space within QB3’s 24,000-square-foot incubator space in San Francisco.

The company said that the new Bay Area incubator will use the San Diego model for its innovation space.

Janssen Labs, a 32,000-square-foot San Diego life science innovation center that is part of Janssen Research & Development LLC, currently houses 18 companies in modular lab spaces and offices. The Janssen Lab model is quite new — it opened a year ago with four companies, and has since grown significantly.
