The Michigan State University Grand Rapids Research Center was dedicated during a ribbon cutting ceremony by university officials and others who contributed to the $88.1 million facility.
The center is meant to bring innovative medicine and leading minds in the health field to West Michigan. Researchers there will work on new treatments for a number of conditions including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, cancer, and autism.
Attendees included former U.S. Ambassador Peter Secchia, Betsy and Dick DeVos, and Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley. Secchia was a major motivating factor in bringing MSU’s School of Human Medicine to Grand Rapids. The DeVoses donated to the project.
