Grand Rapids Research Center

The Grand Rapids Research Center was established to advance MSU’s efforts in improving human health.

The first phase of the Grand Rapids Innovation Park was construction of a six-story, 162,800-square-foot facility that opened in the fall of 2017 and houses basic and translational science research teams recruited from around the nation and the world by MSU.

The areas of emphasis align with the biggest challenges to the health of our state and our nation including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, autism, women’s health and cancer.
