University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) in the US has opened a new $132m facility for eye care research and education and to unite diabetes researchers at the Brehm Tower at the WK Kellogg Eye Center Complex.

The 230,000ft² facility includes eight storeys, which accommodate seven eye care clinics with new suites for refractive surgery and cosmetic surgery.

On the upper floors of the building, the Brehm Center for Diabetes Research and laboratories for vision scientists will foster discoveries in ophthalmology and diabetes.

The Brehm Center features an open laboratory layout to encourage collaboration, shared procedure and equipment areas, a central connecting staircase and centrally located lab services.

The centre also provides cutting-edge facilities for communication and data-sharing among diabetes researchers throughout U-M and beyond.

UMHS will formally dedicate the building on 23 April with a “Dedicated to Discovery” ceremony.
