Public Private Partnership

MSU has formed a public private partnership (P3) with Health Innovation Partners to design, construct, and operate a 200,000 square foot medical innovation building located next to the MSU Grand Rapids Research Center. The Doug Meijer Medical Innovation Building, slated to open fall 2021, will capitalize on the momentum of the strong regional health care and research institutions on the Grand Rapids Medical Mile to transform health through commercializing research and innovation.

Biomedical footprint in Grand Rapids

The six-story Grand Rapids Research Center, which includes 33 principal investigators and their research teams, anchors the biomedical footprint on Medical Mile. Phase II of the project is the Medical Innovation Building, slated to open in late 2021, and a 600-car parking structure. The site may include a future building for additional, yet-to-be-determined, program space to complement the research, education and innovation mission of MSU.
