MSU expanding reach of medical research
Michigan State University’s Human Medicine program is expanding its research facilities far away from East Lansing.
Last month, MSU announced its buying the old Grand Rapids Press building. This week, developers say they hope to turn an old newspaper building in Flint into a home for MSU medical researchers.
Aron Sousa is an associate dean at the MSU College of Human Medicine. He says expansions in Grand Rapids and Flint, as well as Midland and Traverse City, reflect the communities’ needs.
“Both the college [of Human Medicine] and the university want to be more active across the state. We’re the land grant school for the state of Michigan. We take that mission and that history seriously," says Sousa.
MSU is ending some medical programs in Kalamazoo and Saginaw, to make way for new medical schools at Western and Central Michigan Universities.
