I can’t speak highly enough of the capability and confidence with which Venture Forward Lab Partners approaches their work. While at Obsidian Therapeutics, I worked closely with Kyle and his team to facilitate two different moves for the company, as well as coordinate all facilities and operations until we could recruit an in-house Lab Manager.
