The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council unveiled plans on Monday to open a workforce training center for the life sciences industry in the redeveloped Boston Globe building in Dorchester. Landlord Beacon Capital Partners will donate the 4,000-square-foot space for the center on the first floor of the redevelopment, now known as “Southline Boston,” and will pay for the initial buildout of the center as well. The MassBio Training Center is expected to open at the end of 2023, and offer certificate training programs to help people enter the life sciences field. MassBio is launching this center to address the huge shortage of workers needed to fill various jobs in the sector. MassBio is setting up a separate nonprofit to manage the center’s day-to-day operations and will subsidize a portion of its expected $1.5 million to $2.5 million annual budget. MassBio will also seek financial support from its members to help get the center off the ground, as well as possible public funding sources. — JON CHESTO
