The CS Mott Center for Human Growth and Development at the Wayne State University School of Medicine will hold an open house on June 9, beginning a year-long celebration of 50 years of research and training in personalized approaches to treatment and medical care that improve health outcomes for women, men, and children in Detroit and around the world.
Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about basic cancer and gynecology research at the center, and participate in tours of the facility’s laboratories to discover the latest research in progress, from 5-7:30 pm.
The event, which includes a mobile dinner and gift bags, will include notes from Dean Wael Saqr, MD. Stephen Lanier, Ph.D., Washington State University Vice President for Research; Stanley Berry, MD, interim chief of obstetrics and gynecology; and Jill Moore, MD, PhD, and John M. Malone Jr., MD, President Emeritus and Scientific Director of the CS Mott Center.

The Centre, opened in 1973, is an internationally recognized research center established to advance research training related to women’s and child health, with a focus on reproductive biology, immunology, oncology, toxicology and prenatal medicine. Its scientists integrate basic, translational, and clinical research with the goal of improving women’s health.
Located at 275 E. Hancock in Detroit, the center has championed a lifelong perspective on reproductive health and an environmental approach to growth, development, and well-being. Its faculty participates in a personalized approach to treatment and medical care. The Mott Center’s primary mission is to advance basic and clinical biomedical research on reproduction and development. It offers an integrated doctoral degree program that includes teaching, research, and material resources for the Department of Physiology and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The program offers interdisciplinary doctoral training in reproductive sciences.
The center was renovated during a five-phase rebuilding from 2001 to 2008. In addition to the individual obstetric and gynecological researchers’ laboratories and offices, the center houses the research laboratories of the Perinatology Research Branch of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Transplant Laboratory of the Reproductive Biology Branch and medicine, the Department of Internal Research at the National Institute of Human Development, the Genomics Facility at Wayne State University, the Center for Bioinformatics, and the Department of Systems Biology. It also contains one of the clinical research areas in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The center, in collaboration with the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, has also established the Ovarian Cancer Research Interest Group. The group seeks to bring together scientists and clinicians working in the field to integrate the individual expertise of each researcher to find rapid solutions to the disease.
Dr. said. Moore said CDC researchers “believe that education begins in the womb, where there are clear developmental consequences of stress during pregnancy…. The impact of health disparities, genetic factors, and environmental factors such as pollution and socioeconomic stresses disproportionately affect the developmental programming of the fetus, which does not Affects not only the health and well-being of the child but can also perpetuate disease states across generations for future generations Our Pregnancy and Premature Birth Research Program examines pregnancy-specific triggers that influence the developmental programming of adult disease and creates therapies to target and prevent abnormal outcomes with the goal of halting the perpetual self-cycle of disease progression. across generations that begins in the womb.”
Recent discoveries by Mott Center researchers include:
A new technique for measuring the age of male sperm It has the ability to predict success and how long it will take to get pregnant, according to a newly published study by researchers at Wayne State University School of Medicine.
Zinc supplementation for men and women trying to conceive naturally or through assisted reproduction during the COVID-19 pandemic may prevent mitochondrial damage in young egg and sperm cells, As well as boosting immunity against the virus that causes COVID-19.
A new collaborative study published by a research team from Wayne State University School of Medicine, the Kiryat Fertility Center and University of Massachusetts Amherst Provides the first in-depth look at the human sperm microbiome using RNA sequencing with sufficient sensitivity to identify pathogenic bacterial contamination and colonization.
