NEW HAVEN, CT – Elm City Bioscience Center, a state of the art lab building in the heart of Yale’s university and medical complex, is welcoming two startups backed by the entrepreneurs behind some of New Haven’s most successful bioscience companies. The Hurley Group, owner, developer and manager of Elm City Bioscience Center, has signed new leases totaling 18,730 square feet for its building at 55 Church Street.  Aztek Bio, founded by Kevin Rakin, Ranjit Bindra, MD PhD, Seth Herzon, PhD, and Kingson Lin, and Siduma Therapeutics, founded by Dr. Craig Crews, founder of Arvinas and Halda Therapeutics, both began in New Haven and have chosen to continue their cutting-edge scientific research here and will take occupancy this spring and summer, respectively.  

“We look forward to welcoming these biotech leaders into downtown New Haven and our brand-new labs designed by Svigals + Partners, the area’s premier lab architects,” said Hurley Group President David Goldblum. “We aim to make Elm City Bioscience Center a community for fast-growing companies graduating out of the area’s incubators and other smaller spaces; and these two companies are a great start.”  

“The Siduma team is delighted to be moving into the Elm City Science Center” said Rebecca Frey, CEO of Siduma Therapeutics.  “We look forward to advancing our science and mission in the heart of New Haven’s thriving life science ecosystem.” 

The Elm City Bioscience Center is the latest commercial building in New Haven to convert to life science lab facilities, following on hundreds of thousands of square feet of lab conversions that are now virtually 100% occupied. Renovations and upgrades began in August 2021 to support lab use in the entire 113,600 SF building, and include new HVAC, electrical and plumbing. Lab floor plates are available for half-floor (6,300 SF), full-floor (12,600 SF) and multiple floors.  The Hurley Group, which acts as builder and property manager from its headquarters offices within the building, expects to announce additional leases in the coming months.
