The C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development, a basic, research facility housing over 28,000 sq. ft. of laboratory space, is located on the medical campus of Wayne State University School of Medicine. Initially occupied in 1973, the building has been totally renovated through a 5-phase reconstruction project spanning the years of 2001-2008. In addition to individual Ob/Gyn investigators’ laboratories/offices and animal facilities, the renovated building now also houses the research laboratories of the Perinatology Research Branch (PRB) of the NICHD, the Implantation Laboratory of the Reproductive Biology and Medicine Branch, NICHD Intramural Research Division, the Wayne State University Genomics Facility, a Bioinformatics Center and a Systems Biology section. It also contains one of the Ob/Gyn Department’s Clinical Research areas. The primary mission of the Mott Center is to foster basic and clinical biomedical research on reproduction and development.
