Medford, MA Unravel Biosciences will move next month from an incubator lab at UMass. Boston to 3,200 s/f of dedicated space within Cummings Properties’ Boston Ave. innovation campus. The space will house its administrative and research and development functions.

“Our signature Medford location and strong, longstanding affiliation with Tufts University were key factors in the decision,” said senior leasing director Rob Yacobian of Cummings Properties. “Unravel’s new space offers convenient access to its partners at Tufts as well as a fertile recruiting ground to support its growing operations.”

Yacobian worked with senior advisor Brendan Entenmann, of the Steele Group brokerage firm, on the lease, which includes a custom renovation.

“We have strong working relationships in the brokerage community,” said Yacobian, “and collaborating with Brendan in particular made it seamless to come up with a lease arrangement that worked well for both parties.”

In addition to multiple labs operated by Tufts University, Unravel’s new neighbors on Boston Ave. include Morphoceuticals, Myro Therapeutics, Solu Therapeutics, and Sunflower Therapeutics.

The  innovation campus features move-in-ready lab and office space with upgraded finishes, free covered parking, and on-site MBTA bus access.

The Green Line extension, as well as eateries, shops, and other conveniences, are within  walking distance.
