I2SL St. Louis Chapter
2020 I2SL Annual Conference promo image

St. Louis has become one of the fastest-growing and top-ranked emerging life sciences markets in the United States. Home to Bayer, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Danforth Plant Science Center, Washington University, Cortex Innovation Community, and BioSTL, St. Louis has distinguished itself as a hub for life sciences. The strong laboratory facility presence and high concentration of world-class scientists has created a strong demand for high performance buildings and cutting-edge laboratory design.

The goals of the I2SL St. Louis Chapter are to:

  • Educate industry stakeholders on the importance of safety and sustainability within laboratory and high tech facilities.
  • Create a forum for laboratory users, designers, owners, and builders to improve the sustainability and safety of facilities in which we design, build, and operate.
  • Promote innovation and collaboration within the laboratory community to advance the safety and sustainability of new and existing laboratory facilities.
  • Serve our community by advancing the safety and sustainability of both new and existing laboratory and high tech facilities.
