The Core Facilities at UMass Amherst

The Core Facilities at UMass Amherst supplement numerous centralized facilities on other UMass campuses. UMass Amherst operates more than 30 core facilities, many of which are housed in the Life Sciences Laboratory (LSL) building which opened in October of 2016. Many of these facilities advance the Institute’s goals to support high quality research and advance translational programs towards novel drug targets, drug delivery technologies, personalized healthcare devices, nutraceuticals, and technologies – all to enhance human health and well-being. The overall Core Facility infrastructure was made possible by a grant from the Massachusetts Life Science Center.
