BigHat’s New Facility

BigHat is making big moves! After a productive two years at MBC Biolabs in San Carlos, CA we are moving into our very own, brand-new, 15,000 sq ft Class A life science research space in San Mateo, CA in the center of the Bay Area life sciences cluster. Our dedicated facility will allow us to further accelerate our growth and realize our mission to improve human health by designing sophisticated next-generation antibody therapeutics.

Our new facility includes a large, modular state-of-the art laboratory and sleek office space with beautiful views of the bay and mountains. It offers superb amenities from a well-equipped Fitness Center, a Yoga Studio, Shower/Locker Rooms, and a Game Room for our employees to foster community, collaboration, and social interaction. To support BigHat’s family-friendly culture, the new facility provides a wellness room for nursing mothers or a quiet place for meditation or relaxation.

Founded in late 2019, BigHat has rapidly outgrown its humble beginnings with two chairs and one bench in the MBC Biolabs incubator. The BigHat team has more than tripled in size since closing our Series A in Jan 2021. At the same time, we have validated our AI/ML-high speed wet lab platform to design, synthesize, and characterize high-quality protein therapeutics across a variety of modalities and indications. The extra space and modular layout at our new facility will allow us to scale our platform capacity to thousands of antibody designs each week using heterogeneous robotic arrays and our proprietary, end-to-end integrated LIMS.

We’re excited for this next phase of growth as we pursue even more biotherapeutics even faster.

Come visit us in San Mateo, CA to see next-generation antibody drug discovery in action!
