The privately held company is in the process of opening up a branch in the JLABS life science incubator in La Jolla, said Sandra Dunn, the company’s chief executive officer. It’s headquartered in Richmond, a city in the greater Vancouver area. It has five full-time employees and 30 contractors, a number that will grow as its research approaches the clinical trial stage.

San Diego offers a large pool of biomedical talent in drug development, the company’s intellectual property law firm has an office in the city, and the area has good access to capital, Dunn said.
