2011 Science & Technology Initiatives Fund Program


The University of Massachusetts (UMass) President’s Office is pleased to announce the 2011 Science and Technology (S&T) Initiatives Fund. Total funding available will be contingent on the University’s budget situation.
The fund represents President Wilson’s continued commitment to advancing UMass’s interests as the Commonwealth’s public research university and to ensuring that the University contributes significantly to social and economic development in Massachusetts. It also directly responds to the Trustees’ strategic priority on strengthening the University’s research enterprise and growing its portfolio substantially. Investments to date from the fund have totaled nearly $6.5 million, and have generated additional funding of more than $140 million for projects such as the Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing (Amherst), the Massachusetts BioManufacturing Center (Lowell and Dartmouth), the Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (Lowell and Worcester), the UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science (systemwide, led by Worcester) and the Center for Personalized Cancer Therapy (Boston, in partnership with Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center).
