(NECN) - It's time to get our monthly dose of life sciences, and there are some major headlines to report.

Angus McQuilken, vice president of the Mass. Life Sciences Center, has details on a new facility in Worcester called the Sherman Center.

"The big life sciences news for next week is the opening of a new facility at UMass Medical School in Worcester. The Albert Sherman Center is a 500,000 sq. ft., 9-story, $400 million new facility for advanced therapeutics research. It's the Life Sciences Center's largest investment to date - $90 million invested into this project - and it's going to serve as a new magnet for investment in life sciences growth in Worcester and throughout central Massachusetts," McQuilken says.

McQuilken also talks about Collegium Pharma, and the companies repaying the Mass. Life Sciences Center.
