Larta’s award-winning national virtual acceleration program is now being offered in our hometown, Los Angeles. With the support of Gilead Sciences, Heal.LA has launched its first cohort of four early-stage companies at the Lundquist Institute’s BioLabs incubator.  This 4-month pilot program is designed to identify and accelerate the best possible outcome for each company in its sector.

It will use Larta’s acclaimed methodology and results demonstrated over a long period as a commercialization partner to the National Institutes of Health in the U.S. and a number of regions across the globe.

We will grow the program and intend to call for applications to the next cohort in March 2021.
