B.Labs powered by the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center (PABC) is a 50,000 SF life science incubator that provides flexible, plug & play lab and research space, within a specialized network of resources, programming, and expertise. Addressing the region’s intense demand, B.Labs will feature newly-constructed premier lab space with the latest equipment and technology. 
Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN) and Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center (PABC) announce B+labs at Cira Centre is not only open but fully leased. The list of life science leaders occupying the B+labs community includes 3D Systems, Asklepios Biopharmaceutical (AskBio), BriaCell Therapeutics Corp., Carisma Therapeutics, Ceptur Therapeutics, Quanta Therapeutics, Synapticure, Tmunity Therapeutics, Vetigenics, and Vitara Biomedical, among others. 
“The level of activity in Philadelphia and B+labs in particular is starting to feel like Cambridge and the Kendall Square area in Boston. We are thrilled to be here,” said Felipe Bedoya, Director of Cell Engineering and Gene Editing at Tmunity Therapeutics.
 “The science behind the companies at B+labs is impressive, and we are excited to support their discovery and development efforts. It is a formidable group here,” said Matthew Burkhardt, Director of B+labs. “Over 40% of the companies in B+labs are new to the Region. These companies now have the ability to tap into and attract the area’s expansive talent base and the opportunity to be a part of the burgeoning local life science community and rapidly growing ecosystem,” said Jeff DeVuono, Executive Vice President and Regional Managing Director at Brandywine Realty Trust.
B+labs is a part of Brandywine’s diverse life science real estate portfolio ranging from incubator and graduate space to build-to-suit lab and research space. Brandywine’s portfolio includes more than three million square feet of life science space within its master-planned Schuylkill Yards neighborhood and an additional 1 million square feet in the greater Philadelphia region.
