Worcester Polytechnic Institute has received an $877,314 grant from a capital funding initiative led by the Gov. Charlie Baker Administration and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, according to a Thursday announcement.

Funded through MLSC’s Open Capital program, the grant program provides funding for state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure to support the life sciences ecosystem in Massachusetts, according to the announcement.

WPI was one of 11 projects to receive a grant through Open Capital in its most recent funding round. The money will go toward purchasing equipment to create a modular core facility focused on high throughput cell analytics, supporting WPI’s Cell Engineering Research Equipment Suite. 

 “CERES will be co-located at the WPI Biomanufacturing Education and Training Center, expanding WPI’s research and training contributions to the biomedical community in the Greater Worcester region,” said Bogdan Vernescu, vice provost for research at WPI, in a statement.
