Mayor calls La Jolla Library’s biotech lab ‘game changer’

Speaking to a group of library supporters and media reps at a news conference Tuesday, Sept. 1 at the La Jolla Library, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said of its new 3-D printing and biotech lab, “The lab is a game changer for the city. This is the first of its kind, but probably not the last.”

Faulconer and Congressmember Scott peters celebrated the grand opening of the lab that has been available on a “soft-opening” basis to library patrons since April. After their statements, Faulconer and peters toured the biotech lab — with equipment equivalent to that found in a high school biology lab and only open when a qualified volunteer is on hand — and observed a workshop taking place. San Diego City Council president Sherri Lightner made a similar exploratory visit in early August.
