Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC)

Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC)

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) is a quasi-public agency of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, created by the Massachusetts legislature in June 2006.

The MLSC was established to promote the life sciences within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It is tasked with investing in life sciences research and economic development. This work includes making financial investments in public and private institutions growing life sciences research, development and commercialization as well as building ties between sectors of the Massachusetts life sciences community.

On May 8, 2007, during a speech at the BIO 2007 conference, Governor Deval Patrick announced a new Massachusetts Life Sciences Initiative. The Initiative includes a $1 billion investment package (over ten years) to enhance and strengthen the state’s internationally recognized leadership in the life sciences. The Patrick Administration’s strategy brings together industry, academic research hospitals and public and private colleges and universities to coordinate this effort, spur new research, strengthen investments, create new jobs and produce new therapies for a better quality of life.
