The Aaron Lazare Medical Research Building expands the capacity for integrated education, research, and clinical health sciences on this campus by 60 percent. The signature building represents a new era in research at UMass Medical School and helps position the university more competitively among its peers. It has succeeded in surpassing its goal of more than doubling NIH funding and attracting new talent.
"This breathtaking facility has not only transformed the face of our campus, it has solidified, for all of us, our vision of excellence in biomedical research—research that will impact people in profound ways as the causes of disease are discovered."
Dr. Aaron Lazare
Former Chancellor, University of Massachusetts Medical School
