Van Andel Institute Cuts Ribbon on $178 Million Expansion
Date:12/7/2009

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- On December 8, Van Andel Institute (VAI) cuts the ribbon on its eight-story, $178 million, 240,000 square foot Phase II expansion. The expanded facility creates economic and scientific opportunity both for VAI and West Michigan's burgeoning life sciences sector and adds to the more than $1 billion investment in infrastructure already in place along Grand Rapids' Medical Mile. When operating at capacity, the expansion will support a $125 million annual research operation that expands the number of laboratories from the current 18 to more than 50, and provides the capacity for 550 additional jobs.

Phase II nearly triples current laboratory space and promises to significantly increase the Institute's capacity to impact human health through an expansion of its current basic and translational cancer research, and an expanded commitment to neurological diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's through an endowed chair and the new $4.2 million Jay Van Andel Parkinson Research Laboratory. This increased capacity is enhanced by a number of key partnerships including an alliance and affiliation agreement with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) of Phoenix, announced earlier this year, and expanded research opportunities provided by the new regional medical school, the Michigan State University (MSU) College of Human Medicine, which opens in 2010 on an adjacent site.

"The buildings that rise along Grand Rapids' Medical Mile stand as a testament to our community's ability to unite and work together," said Chairman and CEO David Van Andel. "Now is the time to harness that ability to another challenge: to fill those buildings with the most capable individuals who will enable West Michigan to take its place as a leader amon
