The Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building, located along Amsterdam Street between Woodward and Cass, is the biggest project in Wayne State’s history. The $93 million project will create about 200,000 square-feet of space for about 450 researchers and staff, including wet and dry laboratories, faculty offices and common areas, as well as clinical space. “This project brings together a number of biomedical disciplines under one roof, and will give researchers a better opportunity to share and collaborate,” said Wayne State University director-project management Anne Vandenbussche. “But the placement of this project is also visually an important feature, offering a gateway to the north end of the campus.”
