Wayne State University has launched a broad Integrative Biosciences Initiative (IBio) dedicated to research, discovery, education, training and knowledge application across a range of biomedical challenges.
This initiative leverages a new 200,000 sq. ft. Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio) at 6135 Woodward Avenue in Detroit, MI that houses coordinated, multidisciplinary research teams and programmatic initiatives involving translational thrusts focused on pathophysiologies and accumulated stressors affecting health in evolving urban environments.
This is a particularly exciting time period for both the university and the City of Detroit and our objective is to cement a thematic based platform to tackle key urban challenges across a spectrum of disciplines.
Such thematic based initiatives have broad relevance to the evolving role of institutions of higher education and the importance of integrating such entities within the broad communities that they serve. It is anticipated that such initiatives will have significant local and global impact.
