Explora’s 68,000+ square feet of AAALAC-accredited OnDemand space are located in five premium facilities throughout San Diego, CA and two facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our new headquarters and vivarium opened in 2015 in the Coast 9 campus in Sorrento Valley. We also have two facilities on Torrey Pines Mesa, close to Salk Institute, Sanford-Burnham, Scripps, UCSD, JLabs, and hundreds of innovative biotech companies. Our fourth facility is in the San Diego Science Center in Mission Valley, just minutes from the international airport. In late 2016 we opened our fifth San Diego facility in the Genesis Campus Point complex near the UTC biotech community and the BioLabs SD co-working space. These facilities provide convenient access to companies and academic institutions throughout San Diego County. In 2017, Explora expanded to the biotech hubs of South San Francisco and San Francisco’s Mission Bay.
