We transform ideas into world-changing impact. For today, and tomorrow.

Accelerating research to realization

We ignite ideas

Our vision

At BBH, purpose-driven pioneers tackle hard problems using discoveries at the convergence of the life sciences with the physical, engineering, and data sciences. This is BioEnginuity.

Who we bring
together
sets us apart.

We empower researchers

We activate thinkers to become changemakers to accelerate the benefits of cutting-edge science and engineering for society. We are a home for entrepreneurs, and for the entrepreneurs in the making. From graduate fellowships to collaborative learning experiences for undergraduates, BBH Campus Programs will support the entrepreneurial community.

We empower startups

Once activated, we fuse four essential elements: world-class incubator space, patient capital, distinguished mentors, and vibrant founder communities. Here, founders transform discoveries into world-changing companies — to launch into the world, fast. Learn more about Bakar Labs, our 40,000 sq-ft incubator, which opened in late 2021.

What we do

Two time horizons, two communities,
one powerful home.

Campus programs

For the ‘founders of tomorrow’, the Campus Programs at BBH offer training, support and experiences tailored specifically for undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and faculty. BBH will prepare future founders to realize their entrepreneurial potential.

  1. Berkeley BioEnginuity Fellowships
  2. Undergraduate Discovery Experiences
  3. Studio Project Residencies
  4. Interdisciplinary BioEnginuity Salons

For companies

For founders, the Bakar Labs incubator offers world-class laboratories, and direct connections to expert communities and patient capital for startups working at the interdisciplinary boundary of bioconvergence. Bakar Labs at BBH will accelerate taking your discovery to market.
