The Core Research Facilities (CRF) at UMass Lowell is made up of 9 labs that service faculty & students as well as external users, mostly small to mid-sized companies who otherwise don’t have access to state-of-the-art research equipment or who want to access our professional CRO-like services.
Rates are lower than similar CRFs in Cambridge and Boston and our location is very convenient. We also offer a MA-state incentive program that provides substantial discounts to the UMass CRFs for companies up to 50 employees. The discounts range from 50-75% and help early stage companies accelerate their research. It’s been a hugely successful program.Send Inquiry
