 Dear Colleagues:

Many exciting things are happening at the Center for Molecular Medicine and
Genetics at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. This brief letter will
bring you up-to-date on our progress toward our ongoing goal of making fundamen-tal
discoveries in molecular medicine and genetics so that we may profoundly impact
the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human disease.

Research by Center faculty members is making a real difference 

Research by several Center faculty members is breaking new ground in the
understanding of molecular medicine and genetics and how it can impact
human disease and reproduction. Some recent successes include: 

Center mission moves forward with five-year charter renewal 

The Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics has received a five-year
renewal of its charter by Wayne State University. This support from the
University is not just an administrative rubber stamp. It is further
demonstration of the excellent progress and high standards the Center
has set since it was created just five years ago. 

During this time, the Center has supported and nurtured a wide range of
activities in molecular medicine and genetics at Wayne State - through
the basic and translational research conducted by our own faculty
members and the support by the Center as a whole for cutting-edge
molecular medicine and genetics research and facilities throughout the
campus. We plan to continue in this direction.

This charter renewal comes at a critical time, as the Wayne State
University School of Medicine continues its growth and development. The
State of Michigan is developing a Life Sciences corridor which will
include the vast resources and skills already in place at Wayne State.
On a more global basis, researchers around the world are unraveling the
human genome at such great speed that identification and sequencing of
all genes is expected to be complete in just three years. The Center is
well positioned to be a part of this surgence - to use this unfolding
information and to conduct the novel research that may bring cures and
better health to people worldwide.

We will keep you informed about our continued progress and change. I
welcome your input and involvement as we move forward. Please feel free
to call me at (313) 993-7385.

Sincerely,
George Grunberger, MD
Henry L. Brasza Professor
Director, Center for Molecular
Medicine and Genetics
