National Institutes Of Health Awards Wayne State University 10-year Contract To Host And Support Perinatology Research Branch Of NICHD

"The Detroit Medical Center has a long and distinguished history of strategic clinical partnerships placing us at the forefront of medical breakthroughs for our patients," said Joe Mullany, DMC chief executive officer. "The renewed commitment of the NIH/PRB to Wayne State University and DMC Hutzel Women's Hospital continues our legacy of providing our area's high-risk pregnant mothers and their newborns with the highest level of clinical research and medical care possible anywhere."

The announcement is welcome news for Michigan and the city of Detroit, both of which benefit from the presence of the PRB beyond the medical breakthroughs. A 2010 study commissioned by WSU concluded that the cumulative economic impact associated with the PRB during a second 10-year contract will exceed $347 million. New earnings to Michigan residents over the life of a new contract are expected to total $143 million. The PRB employs more than 130 physicians, researchers and staff members, many of them in desirable technology positions.

The PRB was created by an act of Congress to address the problem of complications of pregnancy, including the prevention of preterm birth, the diagnosis of congenital anomalies, preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction and other complications of pregnancy. The NIH awarded a first contract to WSU to host and support the operations of the PRB, which ordinarily would be housed in Bethesda, Md. However, the NIH wished to house the PRB at an institution with a high rate of preterm birth and with a population particularly affected by this condition.
