January 31st will mark the 6yr anniversary of the ACC Bioscience Incubator. As one of the very few leasable lab spaces in Central Texas, this is a remarkable milestone. The Bioscience Incubator is a great resource for the life science community, as it provides move-in ready space that is equipped with close to $2M worth of lab equipment and high-end analytical instrumentation. This video provides a sneak peek into the space and some insight on the impact it has had on the local ecosystem.
