The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) gave final approval Thursday to Harvard University’s Life Lab in Allston.

The Harvard Life Lab, which is scheduled to open this fall, will offer shared laboratory space for high-potential life sciences and biotech startups established by Harvard faculty, alumni, students, and postdoctoral scholars. It will also provide learning and career development opportunities to Harvard students; equip scientific startups with the lab resources and programming needed to grow and scale life-science ventures; and, through collaboration, generate insights and expertise to support Harvard’s ongoing efforts to build a successful life-science environment. Together with the Harvard Innovation Lab (i-lab) and Launch Lab, the Life Lab will foster the cross-disciplinary approach to entrepreneurship that will enable deeper impact and outcomes.
