On Tuesday, November 7, IALS hosted the third annual UMass Core Facilities Showcase!
The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) announced an award of $3.2 million in research infrastructure grants to be shared by two of the UMass Amherst Core Facilities managed by the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS).
The Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) will transform life science discoveries into candidate products and services in collaboration with industry to improve human health and well being. IALS extends specific identified research strengths at UMass through its three centers:
CBD creates new ways to deliver “The right drug to the right place: by creating novel delivery platforms for small and large molecules.” Developing a wide range of delivery platforms matched to bioactive molecular delivery needs based on fundamental design principles, including nanoemulsions, nanoparticles, hybrid particles, bacteria, and hydrogels.
CPHM seeks to tackle real-world problems in the emerging field of digital healthcare, wearable sensor technologies, and personalized, precision healthcare delivery, interfacing closely with provider networks, hospitals, and industry across the Massachusetts Commonwealth, and the world.
M2M leverages mechanistic insights into molecular pathways implicated in cell health and in disease pathology to identify novel drug targets and therapeutic candidates.
We work together with researchers toward a singular goal: advancing applied science and technology to address the world’s most pressing challenges. We offer expertise and resources that create new opportunities, not only for scientific achievement, but also for establishing new models of collaboration.
IALS Venture Development programs are here to help you! Our programs support development of startups and industry partnerships by UMass researchers based upon their technologies and product concepts.
Providing students from Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) hands-on training and experience in the use and operation of a state-of-the art research equipment, experience gathering data and data analysis, and the development of team science.
