A MILESTONE Phase II

A MILESTONE Phase II Groundbreaking Van Andel Institute broke ground on its Phase II expansion April 11, 2007. Phase II continued the vision of architect Raphael Viñoly and provided Institute scientists and operations staff with beautifully designed lab and office spaces where they could continue to develop new and exciting research initiatives into cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Grand Opening On Dec. 8, 2009, Van Andel Institute cut the ribbon on its eight-story, 8 million, 240,000-square-foot Phase II expansion. The expanded facility generated both economic and scientific opportunities by nearly tripling research space and creating the potential to support a 5 million annual research operation.
