The $4 million Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center, known as M2D2, will officially open at a dedication ceremony from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday. M2D2, a joint initiative of the University of Massachusetts’ Lowell and Worcester campuses, is located on the second floor of Wannalancit Mills, at 600 Suffolk St. The center was developed to help new medical device entrepreneurs bridge the gap from invention to production by providing them with access to researchers and resources, and equipment needed to fund, design, prototype, and test their ideas.
