Date:1/30/2008

GVSU, WMSTI, Spectrum Health and MSU College of Human Medicine announce

cooperative laboratory agreement

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Regional leaders in health care and education today announced the creation of a state-of-the-art laboratory, to be housed in Grand Valley State University's Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences, that will bring new cutting-edge women's health research to downtown Grand Rapids.

The lab is a joint effort of Grand Valley State University (GVSU), Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine, the West Michigan Science & Technology Initiative (WMSTI) and Spectrum Health. Work is expected to commence by mid February.

Leading one of MSU's first Grand Rapids-based research endeavors will be Richard E. Leach, MD, MSU College of Human Medicine department chair for obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive biology. Dr. Leach is nationally recognized for research in the field of women's health and reproductive biology, and his studies include conditions and diseases that affect women and fertility, such as endometriosis and miscarriage.

Dr. Leach is leading the MSU/Spectrum Health recruitment of a team of scientists and physicians who will address a broad range of research issues in women's health in the new lab.

"This partnership between Grand Valley, WMSTI, MSU and Spectrum Health provides an extraordinary environment for recruiting accomplished researchers in women's health," Leach said.

The MSU College of Human Medicine lab will be housed on the fifth floor of the Cook-DeVos Center -- which is also home to the WMSTI. MSU researchers will have their own dedicated wet lab space, along with access to existing Grand Valley space on the fifth floor that includes 100 key pieces of laboratory equipment.

"We're pleased to be able to facilitate this exciting opportunity which underscores another example of the incredible collaborative infrastructure un
