We are excited to announce that we have hired Alexander Salas for the role of Facility Manager of our upcoming Atwater Village location. An LA native, Alex graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s Degree in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology. He brings a background in HIV research, laboratory management, and personnel management to the Lab Launch team. Outside of work, he is an avid skateboarder, 80’s music aficionado, and soon-to-be podcaster.
“Alex brings a unique combination of scientific expertise and real-world experience to our team as we look to accelerate our mission to deliver new opportunities for biotech entrepreneurs in Los Angeles and beyond,” says Lab Launch CEO, Dr. Llewellyn Cox.
Alex is equally as enthusiastic about this new position, stating, “Joining the team at Lab Launch is one of the best decisions in my life. Lab Launch has given my crazy passions, big energy, and creative mind a home. With Lab Launch, I have the opportunity to positively impact and support great people with brilliant biotechnology startup companies, using my expertise in leadership.”
We hope you all get to meet Alex soon, and help us welcome him into the Los Angeles biotech community.
