Henry Ford Health, Michigan State University celebrate groundbreaking of research center in Detroit

Hundreds of community members gathered on June 17 to recognize the start of construction on the Henry Ford Health + Michigan State University Health Sciences Research Center in the New Center neighborhood.

Work on the $335 million research facility — a hallmark of the 30-year partnership between the two Michigan institutions — officially began in late May. The medical research center is the first physical embodiment of the Henry Ford + MSU partnership and will further enable groundbreaking discoveries and translational research for which the partnership is becoming known.

The Research Center is located on Third Street just across from the Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center.

Adnan Munkarah chairs the partnership’s board, Teri Grieb is its chief administrative officer, and Norm Hubbard is president of the partnership. They discuss the history and evolving mission of the partnership, the impact the Research Center will have on growing the partnership, and how Henry Ford + MSU can be a model for how universities and healthcare systems can work together.
