Fully Equipped Shared Lab Space

The Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center has expanded and our new light and bright, fully equipped shared lab facility, at 110 Canal Street, 4th Floor, in Lowell, Mass. is ready to welcome many more medical device and biotech start-up entrepreneurs!

M2D2 will offer biotechnology and medical device startup companies dedicated lab space, BSL2 capabilities, equipment and services, open co-working and collaboration space and meeting and conferencing space.

The 11,000 sq. ft. center is made up of a fully-equipped, shared lab facility that can house 50 researchers and also includes plenty of co-working and meeting spaces. Add in parking and its close (three-block, seven-minute walk) proximity to the MBTA commuter rail, and you have the perfect new home for Boston start-ups.

Start-up companies and entrepreneurs utilizing M2D2's new center will have access to all UMass Lowell and the UMass Chan Medical School in Worcester have to offer. Engineering, prototyping, clinician review, animal trials, clinical trials, business mentoring, and partnerships with investors are all available at their fingertips.

Rates have been set and tours are available. If you are interested in our new facility please contact Mary Ann Picard either by email at M2D2@uml.edu or by telephone at 978-934-3465.

We cannot wait to show this new lab facility less than 30 miles from Boston.

Tours are given every week on Tuesday's at 11 a.m., please contact Pamela McGuinness at pamela_mcguinness@uml.edu to register.
