Welcome to HomeLab Powered By LabFellows
Environmental, Health, & Safety Guide

If you are just joining our HomeLab Community, there are some Environmental, Health, and Safety requirements that all Fellow Companies must meet to operate within Federal, State and Local regulations. These regulations are there to protect workers, general public, and the environment around us.

While it may be an exhaustive list of items to do, we have made every effort to make it as efficient as possible for your Fellow Company by providing the resources to meet those regulatory requirements.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send an email to ehs@homelab.com or contact by phone at +1 (855) 959-1182. Here is a list of basic requirements that every company is required to meet

Environmental, Health, & Safety Operating Permits

Every Fellows Company, whether in our Accelerator or Residential programs, is required to have permits to ensure that they are operating in a safe and responsible manner with its Fellows, the Community, and the environment. The permit requirements are based on the hazards your Fellows work with, which may or may not fall under the scope of LabFellows HomeLab EH&S permits provided with your Fellowship’s EH&S Service Support level.

HomeLab requires all Fellow Companies to have or be in process of getting all permits for their Fellow Company within 30 days of starting wetlab work. Permits should be saved to your LabFellows Cloud workspace under Admin Dashboard > Documents > EHS Permits folder.

In order to find out which permit is required for your Fellow Company, please contact our EH&S Team directly.

Health and Safety Plans

Like permits to operate, Fellow Companies are required to have a set of plans to ensure that their Fellows know what to do when they are injured on the job, how to safely handle chemicals, potentially infectious materials.

HomeLab has developed and provides umbrella plan templates that cover the most basic functions of a life sciences research and development laboratory. It is the responsibility of each Fellow Company to customize and implement these plans. And to engage our EH&S Team for more advanced regulatory and compliance needs, such as GXP or HIPPA.

You can find details and plan templates here.

Training

Training is an integral part of a Fellow Company’s Environmental, Health, & Safety Program. It covers the fundamentals knowledge that every Fellow need know in order to perform their job safely and within regulatory compliance.

HomeLab has created a series of core, online EH&S training for all member companies. These training are required for everyone who works in the lab or supervises anyone who works in the lab. Understand that these trainings are only applicable to working at HomeLab facilities. However, it is still the Fellow Company’s responsibility to ensure their Fellows complete trainings and work with HomeLab EH&S Team to customize to their own job-specific hazards.

All the training and their description can be found here.

HomeLab Team

Diverse teams don’t just happen. They are created.

We are a dynamic team with a wide range of cultures and backgrounds in order to give you the best chance of success.

Go from startup to IPO and beyond

Biotech breakthroughs have been crucial for therapeutics and vaccines to treat and prevent diseases, but the process of treatment development, obtaining regulatory approval, and bringing it to market takes an average of 15 years, meaning companies often spend more than a decade before impacting patients they’re designed for.

HomeLab focuses on providing founders and their teams with turnkey solutions that enable faster entry into big markets with full regulatory compliance and ongoing operational support. The following mix makes this possible:

  • Programming: Office hours with mentors ranging from drug development to sales, manufacturing, and distribution.
  • Operational Support: Services from procurement, accounting, IT, to Facilities & EHS with on-premise and remote lab assistance options.
  • Infrastructure: A variety of workspaces solutions ranging from a bench space in our community labs to private HomeLab suites combined to house teams of any size.
  • Benefits: From VIP events, group discounts to strategic partnerships, and more!

Yelia Colin

Head of Marketing

“I Enjoy Spreading The Word About All The Amazing Work Being Done At Homelab So That More Disruptive Innovators Can Join Us To Help Heal The World Through Scientific Innovation. ”

Yelia leads much of the content writing and communications across our various marketing channels. Prior to joining HomeLab she also helped build and manage brands for a few startups in different industries. She is an impact-driven person and the projects she collaborates on makes sure have a positive impact on people’s lives. Her goal is to spread the word about all the amazing work being done at HomeLab so that more disruptive innovators can join us to help heal the world through scientific innovation.

Our Philosophy

The Challenges biotech companies face today should not be finding and running a lab. Ofter, scientists and lab teams spend valuable science time dealing with operations-related issues or trying to figure out how to integrate new technologies and resources into their workflow. HomeLab helps the best teams win and break free from labs that simply aren’t enough. Through vertical integration of lab & office space, technology, and service support, we help disruptive biotech reduce costs and create more efficient operating models so teams can focus on their science while we take care of everything else.

Founded in 2014, we started out by offering monthly membership (Fellowships) o shared wetlab space and equipment to entrepreneurial academic and small startup teams in our community. Over time, our members began to outgrow this model… and so as tey evolved, we evolved:

Our Fellows didn’t need to be graduated – they needed more options for dedicated space to grow their teams.

Our Fellows weren’t pining to another science of beer event – they need more effective and efficient connections to mentors and introductions to capital partners that translated into better development timelines and investor checks.

Our Fellow were not lacking common advice on how to incorporate their companies of file patents – they need uncommon tips and tricks to build better biotechs.

It’s clear we are far more tan an incubator space – we work with founders to build HomeLab – Home of the Disruptive Biotech

 

Our Approach

We believe that disruptive biotechs transcend boundaries: they can be built anywhere, by anyone, and in any corner of the economy, from curing rare diseases at scale to mass-producing lab-grown meat. We want to find and be a home to these companies.

We partner with founders around the world, across life sciences and digital health applications, and at various stages, primarily before success is obvious.

Our mission is simple: Back disruptive biotechs that invent the future and become founders’ most trusted partners by providing all the space and operational support they need to do more science. We measure our success not merely by helping founders build toward exceptional exits, but by the impact we create through our mission-driven bio innovation consortium.

We aspire to achieve success through diversity and inclusion of people and technology. The best teams win. And the best teams are the most diverse ones. We set the example by our team, the founders we select, our partners, and the people across the world that our companies serve. We develop unfair advantages of digitizing business and lab operational processes that reduce burn and extend the runway for our teams to outcompete others too afraid to embrace technology.

Through vertical integration of lab & office space, technology, and service support, we help disruptive biotechs reduce costs and create more efficient operating models so teams can focus on their science while we take care of everything else.
