Press Release

Biotech Company Grifols Propels Rise of El Sereno as Leading Bioscience Hub

Grifols, a thriving bioscience/biotech company in L.A., is continuing its longstanding support of the community of El Sereno through the creation of the Bioscience Corridor. For years, Grifols has partnered with Cal State LA to support STEM programs for underprivileged students in El Sereno; now they are advocating for opportunities beyond the classroom by transforming El Sereno into a Bioscience Valley, a national hub for all bioscience technologies and innovations. 

The newly proposed Corridor is being led by USC and CSULA, and is already underway: CSULA has broken ground for LA BioSpace, an incubator for startup biotech companies; USC is planning a bioscience/biotech facility and health campus; and private investors are working together to create HATCH, a second-step incubator to be built on Alhambra Road.

Grifols is proud to have supported city and county efforts to make the Bioscience Corridor a reality. As champions of El Sereno and its residents, the corridor is expected to provide new work opportunities to the area, and act as a strong reason to invest in surrounding small businesses and neighborhood developments.

The Secrets of New York City's Grand Central Terminal

If you are bound for New York City, be sure to stop by Grand Central Terminal to explore its well-known (and not so well-known) idiosyncrasies.

Manhattan’s second most visited tourist site was built in 1913 as a result of one of the city's most tragic train accidents. Envisioned by the self-taught engineer William Wilgus, the terminal is a civic engineering masterpiece that required no public funding. Thanks to Wilgus’ use of new electric trains, tracks could be built deep enough underground to make use of the “air space” above to lease to developers and merchants. And just like everything else in New York, it couldn’t just be grand, it had to be beautiful.

The terminal's main concourse is an exceptional Beaux Arts building that welcomes over 750,000 people. Grand Central Terminal is not only the world’s largest train terminal, it is also living history with 101 years of hidden passageways and secrets to share with curious visitors. Here are 11 of our favorites.
