Nucleate Baltimore is run in partnership with HBN and is a chapter of Nucleate, a national non-profit educational organization. We facilitate the formation of life science ventures by bringing together business students and scientific trainees in the Baltimore & DMV area.


The Nucleate program is a student/trainee-focused accelerator program designed to enable the next generation of bio entrepreneurs to launch successful science ventures. We equip bio entrepreneurs with the skills and network necessary to succeed.


Nucleate collaborates closely with world-class partners from the life sciences ecosystem to facilitate entrepreneurs in launching their own science ventures. List of collaborators for the Baltimore chapter coming soon! 

Who is the program for?

Nucleate is for all current academic trainees (PhD, Postdoc, JD, MBA, MD, Master’s, Undergrad) who want to launch a life-science venture.
