Mass. Biologics Laboratories - University of Massachusetts Medical School

The facility sits on a 15.3-acre section of the former Boston State Hospital property in Mattapan which was transferred to the Medical School in 2002 to facilitate the MBL's expansion and help spur economic development on and around the long-shuttered state hospital campus. The new building is an extension of the MBL's existing facilities on UMMS's nearby Jamaica Plain campus, adjacent to the Arnold Arboretum. MBL facility has a state-of-the-art aseptic filling operation that will fill vials of vaccine and other therapeutics manufactured at the MBL. The building also houses a major new monoclonal antibody manufacturing operation, believed to be the largest public facility of its kind in the country.
