The Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (M2D2) is a lifeline for the state’s smaller medical device companies, offering inventors and executives easy, affordable, and coordinated access to world-class researchers and resources at the Lowell and Worcester campuses of the University of Massachusetts.
M2D2 leverages the engineering, business and clinical strengths of the UMass campuses in Lowell and Worcester to provide fee-based services in the areas of business planning, product prototype development and clinical pathway assistance.
M2D2 is proud to be the only BARDA DRIVe accelerator in New England. BARDA’s DRIVe aims to empower people and give them a greater role in their health outcomes. They are actively seeking better ways to detect threats, point-of-use indicators, biological and physiological sensing technologies.
Thanks to a $7.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), M2D2 is also currently playing a large role in the development of CAPCaT, a new Center for Advancing Point-of-Care Technologies focused on heart, lung, blood and sleep disorders.
