KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -- The new Western Michigan University School of Medicine's future home in downtown Kalamazoo will be named the W.E. Upjohn Campus in honor of the founder of pharmaceutical company Upjohn.
The plans were announced Thursday.
The building once was used for pharmaceutical research as part of the downtown campuses of Upjohn and fellow pharmaceutical companies Pharmacia and Pfizer.
Plans for the building were announced last year. Renovation is expected to be finished by the time the first class of medical students arrives in August 2014.
