Albert Sherman Building

The $400-million Albert Sherman Center will expand and unify the UMass Medical School’s Worcester campus, double its research capacity and support the school’s new learner-centered curriculum. This interdisciplinary, state-of-the-art research and education facility will foster interaction and collaboration among scientists and promote innovation and synergies across disciplines. The 480,000-square-foot Sherman Center, scheduled to open in late 2012, will attract researchers, physicians, faculty, students and industry partners, enhancing the Medical School’s position as a leader in medical research and education.
