    Default Something Spartans and Wolverines can both be proud of




    Michigan's University Research Corridor tops in nation | MSUToday | Michigan State University

    The URC – consisting of Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University – saw its research and development spending grow by 43 percent from 2007 to 2011, when it exceeded $2 billion for the first time. Its research and development growth rate topped six other major university research clusters in five states, including well-known hubs such as North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, California’s Innovation Hubs and Massachusetts’ Route 128 Corridor.
    Pretty cool...

    It's too bad GVSU doesn't have more research stuff going on. I think they could really collaborate with all the Medical Mile stuff in GR and extend that that corridor a little to the west. I know MSU has a medial school along the Medical Mile now, so that might be somewhat tied into the URC as well.

    MSU, Spectrum Health, and the Van Andel Institute all do work together with some reasearch. Not sure if it's affiliated with the URC. Spectrum Health does have its own independent research department as well, which currently has something like 700+ clinical trials going on.

    I'm not so sure that GVSU is interested in becoming a "Research 1" university. I think they're just fine as a "Research 2" in their own eyes. I just say that based off of things I've heard from professors here..
