Welcome to Novo Nordisk in the United States

Life science innovators, get your Golden Ticket!

By Novo Nordisk US | Published September 10, 2020

Imagine what you could do with workspace for an entire year at LabCentral, Boston’s premier, biotech-capable shared lab-facility!

Believing innovations can come from anywhere, this fall we’re calling life sciences and biotech start-ups to show they’ve got what it takes to win Golden Tickets from Novo Nordisk. Two winners bringing the boldest new thinking get, for one year, access for one scientist to get bench space at LabCentral’s state-of-the-art shared lab space in Boston.

The first Novo Nordisk-sponsored Golden Tickets were awarded in 2019 to life sciences companies Cellino Biotech, Inc. and Summation Bio. In this video, the 2019 winners share their experience and advice for future Golden Ticket participants:


LabCentral, just a short walk from Novo Nordisk’s new Boston Innovation Hub in Kendall Square, is a first-of-its-kind shared laboratory space located in the heart of Cambridge, Mass. Novo Nordisk is committed to discovering, creating and co-creating innovation to solve healthcare challenges for people living with chronic diseases and will award two Golden Tickets a year for three years.

Life sciences start-ups interested in winning a LabCentral space should review the full competition terms and conditions to submit their Golden Ticket application by Friday, October 9, 2020.
