Diverge Translational Science Laboratory consists of 10 employees who made the leap, and diverged, from academia to industry and are loving the startup life. Every team member contributed to our successful transition from academia to industry. Together, we all toured potential lab spaces, packed up the laboratory, moved it to the new space, and even built the furniture – as a team and extended family. Building this company has definitely made us all closer. We not only work together towards the company goals, but everyone enjoys doing things together outside of work. We frequently get lunch, ice cream, go out for drinks and many other activities together.

We built the company together and will continue to grow it that way.
