First look inside MSU's $88M Grand Rapids Medical Research Center
When Dr. Norman Beauchamp Jr. wakes up in the morning, he can look out the window of his home in The Rowe Apartments to see how his future is shaping up.
Beauchamp, who became the dean of Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine last October, has a view of MSU's new Grand Rapids Research Center, a 6-story building being built on the northeast corner Michigan Street and Monroe Avenue NW.
The glass and metal-clad building is entering the final phases of its construction as construction workers complete the finishes and prepare to move in high-tech laboratory equipment that researchers will use to study Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, pediatric neurology, autism and other diseases.
