New women's health researcher brings $6.8 million in funding to MSU
Date:4/28/2010

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. West Michigan and Michigan State University have become the new home for a $6.8 million Center for Women's Health and Reproduction Research, thanks to the collaborative efforts of MSU, Spectrum Health and the Van Andel Institute.

Leading infertility researcher and new recruit Asgi T. Fazleabas has been director of a Specialized Cooperative Centers Program in Reproduction and Infertility Research at the University of Illinois, now in its eighth year of funding. Supported by a $6.8 million award by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the center and its funding moved this month to MSU, where Fazleabas is now a professor and an associate chairperson in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology.

MSU's new Center for Women's Health and Reproduction Research is one of 15 nationwide and is housed in the Van Andel Institute, also home of the college's $6.8 million Udall Center for Parkinson's Disease Research.

"Dr. Fazleabas brings an extensive international research portfolio in the area of women's reproductive health to the region," said Marsha D. Rappley, dean of MSU's College of Human Medicine. "The collective recruitment efforts of the Spectrum HealthMichigan State University Alliance along with the Van Andel Institute have once again resulted in an internationally renowned center of excellence in Grand Rapids."

Fazleabas, funded by the National Institutes of Health continuously since 1986, is a leading authority in the fields of uterine biology, fertility and endometriosis, a debilitating gynecological medical condition that affects one in 10 women with health care costs of $22 billion a year.

His recruitment was made possible by the MSU-Spectrum alliance, a formal agreement between the two institutions to collaborate on medical school faculty recruitment, research initiatives and facility development.
