[Source: GenomeWeb News] – Van Andel Institute next week will formally open its $178 million Phase II research-education project, an expansion of its Grand Rapids, Mich., facility that will nearly triple its laboratory space, allowing it to expand its research and more than triple its staff.

The institute will mark the project’s completion with a Dec. 8 ribbon-cutting. Van Andel will use the eight-story, 240,000-square-foot Phase II facility to house expanded research space for neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, and multiple sclerosis, in addition to chronic illnesses such as diabetes through an affiliation with the Translational Genomics Research Institute in Phoenix.
