Event description

Description

UMass Lowell is excited to announce the grand opening of its new, state-of-the art, pilot-scale lyophilization facility. As the newest member of UMass Lowell’s Core Research Facilities, the Lyophilization Lab (LyoBay) provides an R&D test bed for process development, scale-up and the development and application of new process analytical technologies. It will also serve as a user facility for pre-clinical process development and training to support the local and national biotechnology industry. The facility was developed with the generous support from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center and from the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL). A NIIMBL funded project team led by Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) of Andover, MA, and including UMass Lowell, the University of Connecticut, Purdue University, Merck, and Genentech, are guiding the facility development and will be the inaugural users of the facility developing process scale-up tools to support improved biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

Please join us to celebrate the opening of this new, important addition to our innovation ecosystem. Our list of invited speakers includes representatives from PSI Inc., Pfizer, NIIMBL, Mass Life Sciences, UMass Lowell, as well as local and state government officials. You’ll be able to tour the new facility and see some of the other R&D labs available in UMass Lowell’s Core Research Facilities.

Refreshments including beer and wine will be served.


FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is available in the Riverside Parking Lot B: https://www.uml.edu/maps/marker/02f54eb0-0740-4e09-86ed-047b079474ee (entrance is off of Sparks Street). If entering Sparks Street from Riverside Street, bear right at the fork and take your first right onto the access road. About half way down the access road, on your right, is the entrance to the outdoor parking lot “Riverside B”. The gate will be open; park in any available spot. Please note, if you get to the entrance gate to the parking garage, you’ve gone too far.

The Core Research Facilities are located in the Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center (ETIC) at 40 University Avenue, a quick five minute walk from the parking lot.
