BOSTON (AP) - The chairman of the scientific board that advises the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center has resigned.

Harvey Lodish pointed to what he said was a lack of investment by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker in the center.

Lodish told the Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/1P9W1KD ) that he had become frustrated during the last year with the administration’s lack of communication over the future of the center’s capital fund and commitment to the scientific advisory board.

Travis McCready, the center’s chief executive, told the Globe he understands Lodish’s frustration, but said there are “some budget realities that we have to work out.”

Baker’s budget for the 2016 year did not include money for the center’s capital fund. Officials said the capitol fund will be part of a separate mid-year budgeting process.
