Michigan Alliance for Reproductive Technologies and Science (MARTS)

MARTS is a coalition formed by scientists and administrators in reproductive sciences from Michigan State University, Wayne State University, University of Michigan, Oakland University-Beaumont Hospital, Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University.

Their goal is to accelerate growth of the reproductive sciences in Michigan and development of relevant technologies by enhancing communication and collaboration of researchers, clinicians, and educators within the state leading to improvements in women's health, new treatments for infertility, and reduced incidence of adult chronic disease caused by in utero environment during pregnancy. MSU is a founding member of coalition and hosted first MARTS research forum on May 6, 2011. To learn more Click Here.
