Groundbreaking Research that Improves the Health and Well-Being of Individuals and Populations

Purchasing the property that is today’s North Campus Research Complex was a bold, historic decision made by the Board of Regents. It came at a time of great uncertainty about our regional economy, and represented the forward thinking that is necessary for the University to thrive. We now have more than 2,000 people on site, and the NCRC continues to expand with talent and programs. It has become a real asset for research, creativity, and economic development in Southeast Michigan, and will continue to flourish in years ahead.

NCRC continues to evolve into a thriving community of talented visionaries working together to create the future of health care through discovery. It is a community driven by the spirit of innovation and grounded in a shared desire to impact the world through groundbreaking research that improves the health and well-being of individuals and populations. With each new tenant, every meeting and event hosted at NCRC, we move ever closer to establishing the nation’s top translational research institution right here in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am so proud of how far we’ve come and I look forward to an extraordinary future.

The NCRC has emerged as a showcase for the collaborative spirit that, across disciplines and with industry, underlies the success of the research activities across our entire campus.

The promise of NCRC was realized for hundreds of researchers across the university who came together to form the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation (IHPI) in a former administrative building on the site.  With one of the world’s largest concentrations of health care and health policy researchers within one organization, U-M’s IHPI is poised to have a major influence on policy, payment and practice changes that impact patient health.

Robert J. Vlasic Dean of Engineering, U-M College of Engineering

NCRC is home to a growing research collaboration between the College of Engineering, and the Medical School and other health disciplines.  Working together within the vibrant and interactive NCRC environment, our faculty members are aggressively attacking life-changing problems. I am convinced that major discoveries will flow from this exciting synthesis of disciplines.
