About IBio

Wayne State University - Detroit's public, urban research university - is home to the new Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio), a $90 million facility dedicated to studying and eliminating the many health disparities that plague the city's residents. IBio will be home to faculty with expertise in environmental sciences, bio and systems engineering, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, asthma and biobehavioral health.

The building, strategically positioned near TechTown, Wayne State's business incubator, will move discoveries and technologies from the laboratory to the community, and will eventually house over 400 individuals within 200,000 square feet of lab and clinical space designed to foster a collaborative and flexible team science approach to research.
