About Us

to Jumar

Welcome to Jumar Bioincubator - we’re here to support the next generation of biotech startups, as they strive to bring innovative health solutions to market. We’re proud to be Australia’s first and only biotech incubator to be colocated with a leading biopharmaceutical company in a world-class biomedical precinct.

Our mission is to create a world-class hub for innovation translation, research commercialisation and talent development in biotechnology, with a critical mass of management-skilled scientists who have the knowledge and confidence to run successful biomed and biotech companies.

Our Mission




Jumar serves as a ‘first home’ for young biotech ventures, providing you with affordable lab and office space and the practical support to unlock the potential of your early scientific discoveries. Companies in residence become part of a vibrant community, with access to world-class facilities, a dedicated team to lean on, as well as curated entrepreneurial training and events.

This purposely designed environment will leave you better equipped to progress your discoveries towards real-world outcomes.

Critical infrastructure

Biotech startups require critical infrastructure to support their early research, development, and continued growth. Jumar offers state-of-the-art PC2 wet-labs and specialised equipment, available at startup-friendly prices and flexibility as your team grows. We provide comprehensive services and wraparound support to foster an environment where entrepreneurialism and research translation can flourish.


Community hub

It's not just about physical space. Jumar serves as a vibrant hub bringing together all members of the ecosystem for the benefit of residents and the wider Australian biotech landscape. Residents become part of a unique community – an ideal environment to unlock ideas, innovation and knowledge sharing. 



Located on two floors within CSL’s new global corporate headquarters, and in the heart of world-leading Melbourne Biomedical Precinct. Work alongside some of Australia’s most distinguished entities spanning industry, research and academia, enabling opportunities for peer collaboration, learning and sharing of ideas. 

*Startups in residence retain their own funding with no equity ties to the three founding partners (CSL, WEHI and The University of Melbourne)
