A first look inside UC Berkeley’s Bakar BioEnginuity Hub

After two years of construction, the Bakar BioEnginuity Hub (BBH) is scheduled to open in February 2022. The world-class facility pairs the Bakar Labs incubator with fellowships and programming for Berkeley students and researchers, equipping current and aspiring entrepreneurs in the STEM world with labs, offices, equipment and shared community spaces that aim to encourage collaboration.

Berkeley News toured the building to get a firsthand look at its unique architectural design, and talked with new BBH tenants and leaders in the STEM and entrepreneurship space about how the facility will contribute to innovation and change-making at Berkeley.
