About Research at UMass Medical School

The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) strives to catalyze our world-class basic research into scientific discoveries with high impact clinical applications and overcome the barriers in translating knowledge into clinical practice.

Established in 1970, UMMS has rapidly grown into a highly productive, highly collaborative research enterprise with outstanding scientific resources and facilities. The Medical School receives more than $240 million per year in research funding. Our research community includes a Nobel laureate, a Lasker award recipient, two members of the National Academy of Sciences, two members of the Institute of Medicine and seven Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators. Our research achievements have impacted the lives of children and adults in the US and across the globe.

The creation of the Advanced Therapeutics Cluster in the new 512,000 square foot Albert Sherman Center harnesses the therapeutic potential of RNA biology, stem cell biology and gene therapy to benefit human beings worldwide.
