(NECN) - Umass Medical School Chancellor Michael Collins talks about how the scheduled budget cuts (sequestration) would affect the scientific and research communities here in New England.

He also weighs in on the primary care doctor shortage and what the opening of the Albie Sherman Center will mean for the University next week.
