DETROIT (AP) - Wayne State University is celebrating the opening of a $93 million Integrative Biosciences Center in Detroit.

Mayor Mike Duggan will join Wayne State President M. Roy Wilson and other officials Wednesday at the center, north of downtown.

The school says diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and other health issues that disproportionally affect city residents will be part of the focus of researchers at the facility.

The building sits on a previously abandoned 2.7-acre city block. It has more than 200,000 square feet of lab and clinical space. Faculty and staff started moving into the building in July.

Henry Ford Health System will occupy a portion of the building’s first floor.
