The Toscana Life Sciences (TLS) Foundation is a non-profit organization that has been active in the regional panorama since 2005 with the objective of supporting research activities in the Life Sciences and, in particular, of sustaining the development of projects from basic research to industrial application.
In particular, the Foundation was created to facilitate the company start-up process in the sector of biotechnology applied to human health, to support research in the field of orphan diseases, and to manage activities of technology transfer in the biomedical field and the exploitation of research, also through national and international networking activities. To reach these objectives, TLS has created the bioincubator where it provides technological platforms and expertise and experience networks within the regional scientific community – starting from universities, research centers and private laboratories that work in the biomedical sector – offering their support in the industrial, scientific, and business development contexts.
