$88.1M Grand Rapids Research Center opens doors to medical discovery

A new era for scientific discovery was unveiled September 20 during a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony for Michigan State University’s $88.1 million Grand Rapids Research Center.

The six-story, 162,800-square-foot facility will initially accommodate 33 principal investigators and their research teams, with space eventually to house 44 research teams. Twenty-five MSU College of Human Medicine researchers and their teams currently housed in the Van Andel Institute will move into the new research center later this fall.
