Prophase Biostudios is a 501(c)3 non-profit community biotechnology laboratory based out of Austin, TX since 2016.
Decentralizing biotech through collaboration.
You may be familiar with large number of communities and co-working spaces around the world dedicated to the usual kinds of “tech” (software, robotics, AI, etc.). Biology has recently become a technology just as amenable to rapid development of entrepreneurship by individuals as computers were 20 years ago. What once required large amounts of money and the support of large laboratories is now much more accessible.
We are building collaborative laboratory spaces where studies in microbiology, molecular biology, plants, fungi, invertebrates and bioinformatics can finally be conducted in a financially and socially accessible environment. Our biostudios will cultivate innovation in the biological sciences and foster exploration of bio-curiosity. Our members will use the skills and knowledge gained at Prophase Biostudios to spawn original applications of science and biotechnology.
We are a membership of shared equipment, space, ideas and connections working together to make the next technological revolution happen right here in Austin, and we aim to become a model for how to do this in other cities around the world. In true biological fashion, we want to make a self-sufficient organism/organization that can replicate and spur the evolution of better and better biological entrepreneurship.
Come be a part of the next technological revolution!
