WMed is a private medical school formed through a collaboration of Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo’s two teaching hospitals, Borgess Health and Bronson Healthcare. An integral component of the medical school’s research strategy, the Innovation Center supplements the two research floors on WMed’s downtown W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus by providing incubator space that serves to advance research discoveries to commercialization as well as more research experience opportunities for medical school learners. Innovation Center researchers are encouraged to seek a faculty appointment at the medical school to share their expertise with learners, collaborate with other faculty, and to benefit from medical school resources.
