Welcome New Client Company
Vaginal Biome Science

In April, we welcomed Vaginal Biome Science to the incubator. They are occupying one of our brand new spaces in the Willamette Wharf building. From their website:

Together with our strong alliance of partners, we are broadening and accelerating groundbreaking studies into the vaginal biome, pioneering new understanding of the role of the biome as a determinant of vaginal and overall health, and developing new products, solutions, and protocols – redefining decades-old and tired approaches to women’s health.

We’re happy to have you on board!
