Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray (center) toured labs at Boston Children’s Hospital after announcing the grants.

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center gave out $9.35 million in grants Monday, with the bulk of it going to Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

The quasi-public state agency — charged with implementing Governor Deval Patrick’s life sciences initiative signed into law nearly five years ago — also gave out grants for education and training to Bunker Hill Community College, Quincy College, and Regis College.

The center also allocated money to five vocational schools and high schools aimed at increasing access to the so-called STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering and math. Those schools included Norfolk County Agricultural High School, Quincy High School, and Revere High School.
