$150 Million The Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) 

The Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) at University of Massachusetts, Amherst is now fully operational and open for use by UMass faculty researchers as well as its industry and academic partners.(for more details see earlier blog UMass, Amherst Opens $150 Million Institute for Applied Life Sciences)

The institute was first established through a $95 million grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC). An additional $55 million was later invested toward the construction and fit-out of the Life Sciences Laboratories building. This building is designed for interdisciplinary research, student training and large-equipment facilities. IALS also fosters spin-out companies and seeks to become a catalyst for a biotechnology hub in Western Massachusetts.

To date more than $20 million in IALS-related sponsored research awards have been secured. This funding will support more than 30 projects associated with industry collaborators. To support these research projects IALS manages 30 core facilities.

Core Equipment Facilities include:

  • Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Cell Culture
  • Device Fabrication Cleanroom
  • Genomics Resource Laboratory
  • Human Testing Center
  • Nanofabrication Cleanroom
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

The investment in state-of-the-art equipment will be critical to fulfilling the IALS's translational mission: to turn life science research into products that improve human health

IALS combines the expertise of more than 175 faculty members associated with 5 schools and colleges and 28 departments. The Institute is organized as three centers:

  • Center for Bioactive Delivery seeks to deliver the right drug to the right place. This is achieved by creating novel delivery technologies for small and large molecules.
  • Models to Medicine Center will identify novel drug targets and therapeutic candidates by using new insights about molecular pathways implicated in cell health and disease.
  • Center for Personalized Health Monitoring seeks to be a world-leading research, partnership, and demonstration facility for accelerating the commercialization of low-cost, multi-function, wearable wireless sensor systems for personalized health care and biometric monitoring.

 

Laboratory Product Suppliers Meet Life Science Researchers at Upcoming UMass Event:

The 4th Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ at the University of Massachusetts will be held on Friday, August 3, 2018.  This annual life science trade show at UMass, Amherst  brings researchers face-to-face with laboratory equipment suppliers is hosted by Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.
