DETROIT (AP) — Wayne State University will remain home of a National Institutes of Health branch that focuses on research into pregnancy problems through 2023.
The school said in a statement dated Thursday that it's getting a 10-year, $165.9 million contract for the Perinatology Research Branch.
Wayne State University says it's the Detroit school's largest research contract.
Thousands of Detroit-area women get care through the program housed since 2002 at the Wayne State University School of Medicine and the Detroit Medical Center's Hutzel Women's Hospital. The school previously had a 10-year contract for the program.
The money comes from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development of the National Institutes of Health.
