Partnerships for Innovation

MSU Nurses

To accelerate progress toward the healthier future we envision, we must be entrepreneurial, adaptive and nimble, finding new ways to deliver education, conduct research and engage with communities and stakeholders across the globe. We have forged and will continue to pursue strong partnerships that support MSU’s mission, align with our values and expand our reach.

The new Doug Meijer Medical Innovation Building in Grand Rapids, opening in late 2021, will drive innovation by connecting tenants in the public-private partnership. A new 30-year partnership with Henry Ford Health System integrates the strengths of MSU and HFHS to advance research, educate the next generation of health care leaders and create a new model of care that aims to eliminate disparities and lead to stronger, healthier communities. A top priority for the partnership is creating a joint cancer center to address Michigan’s unique cancer needs. These educational, clinical and research partnerships, and many others, are vital to achieving our sustainable health goals by increasing our pace and amplifying our impact.
