Ribbon Cut: Official Opening of Sherman Center

The University of Massachusetts Medical School enters a new era of biomedical research, medical education and campus collaboration with the opening of the $400 million, state-of-the-art Albert Sherman Center. Home to Nobel Prize-winning research and the cornerstone of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Act, the Sherman Center was unveiled to the public on January 30, 2013 a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Gov. Deval Patrick.

“The completion of the Albert Sherman Center is a transformative event in the history of the Commonwealth’s medical school,” said Chancellor Michael F. Collins. “It would be hard to overstate the importance of this new center to our campus, or the positive impact of the work that will go on within it.”
