Michigan State University broke ground today on a new, $60 million dollar bioengineering building.

The building will serve as place for researchers in different disciplines to share ideas for advancements in medicine and other sciences.

“Let’s not forget that as important as the facility is to our success, it is the people, the researchers, the medical professionals applying their knowledge, curiosity and perseverance that will ultimately triumph,” said Stephen Hsu, vice president for Research and Graduate Studies at MSU.

Hsu says part of the mission for researchers in the new bioengineering facility is to channel “their discoveries into translational research, commercialization and wide spread application.”

The facility is expected to be open in the fall of 2015.
