MSU Opens New $69.8 Million Bioengineering Research Facility

Posted by Emily Olson on Mon, Dec 05, 2016

Michigan State University has recently opened a new 130,000-square-foot Bio Engineering Facility on its East Lansing campus. The $69.8 million research building will bring together researchers from a wide range of disciplines to collaborate on cutting-edge biomedical research projects, with a shared mission to improve human health and save lives around the world. 

The facility will house labs and offices for faculty scientists from the colleges of Human Medicine, Natural Science, and Engineering, according to MSU Today. It will also facilitate collaboration with other MSU departments, including nursing, osteopathic medicine, and veterinary medicine. It is located near the Radiology building and is connected to both the Clinical Center and Life Sciences buildings, establishing a biomedical research hub on the MSU campus.

“This building, with its emphasis on bringing together engineers and basic science researchers with medical researchers, will provide us with remarkable opportunities for solving some of humanity’s biggest challenges,” said Stephen Hsu, MSU vice president for research and graduate studies. “It also will help us attract more competitive, nationally funded projects and recruit the best minds to work with us – both faculty and graduate students.”

The laboratories in the new research facility integrate space for bench experiments with space for computational analysis and an on-site imaging facility, which allows for a systems approach to biomedical research. The labs' open-floor layout will help facilitate collaborative research, and their modular design will provide flexibility in coming years as technology and equipment evolve.

“The Bio Engineering facility is more than just a building,” MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon said. “It represents the enormous opportunity for discovery and the vast potential for knowledge advancement that can be unlocked through scientific collaboration.”

The new building also houses the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering, a recently formed basic and applied research center that brings together researchers from the life sciences and engineering with specialists from the physical and mathematical sciences.
