Our Story

LabShares is a unique shared laboratory space that was born out of a small biotech success story. CEO and Founder, Jeff Behrens, originally began his search for lab space in Newton in 2014 while serving as CEO for Siamab Therapeutics. Tired of the long commute to Cambridge, he led Siamab to build a lab in Chapel Bridge Park in Newton. Siamab thrived there through its successful exit in 2019. With Siamab's exit leaving the lab space unoccupied, Jeff began work to re-fit the space as an incubator- enter LabShares. 


Since the initial opening of LabShares in 2018, the company has expanded several times and now occupies more than triple the initial footprint. Our mission is to provide top-quality service to a diverse group of life science startups by offering fully equipped, outfitted, and permitted lab space with a wide range of utilities and resources. We are staffed by industry-savvy professionals, ready to help our members find the answers they need while they focus on discovering the cures of tomorrow.
