The Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio) represents Wayne State University’s commitment to advancing knowledge across the sciences, with a focus on diseases and accumulated stressors affecting health and health equity in evolving urban environments. The research conducted here will have significant benefits to the surrounding communities. At 200,000 square feet, this $90-million facility is the largest construction project in Wayne State’s history. Located on a previously abandoned city block in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood, IBio will play a major role in the city’s revitalization. Estimates indicate that IBio will bring in nearly $40 million in new earnings annually in Michigan, 98 percent of which will be in metropolitan Detroit. We invite you to join us for the grand opening of this specially designed research facility. Guests from the university, collaborating partners and the community will be present to celebrate the launch of a new era of research, discovery and knowledge application in the heart of Detroit.
