Lakeside Life Science was founded in January of 2015, by W. Jeffrey and Paul Allard. We founded Lakeside to bring patients and communities together to advance personalized medicine through the research and development of novel diagnostic tests. We provide the resources for our clients to bring their assays from invention to FDA clearance/approval, while putting the patient's needs first.
