1927The Thomas Henry Simpson Memorial Institute for Medical Research combined medical research and patient care activities, provided research experience for medical and postgraduate students, direct care to its patients on the third floor, and consultant services to patients at the University Hospital. Among its contributions were the development of a new agent for the treatment of pernicious anemia, the isolation of vitamin B-12, improved understanding of the use of blood and blood substitutes in the treatment of shock, and insight into the causes and treatments of leukemia and other neoplastic diseases of the blood. A gift to the University by Catherine MacDonald Simpson as a memorial to her husband, a Detroit industrialist who died of pernicious anemia, the building, designed by Albert Kahn, now serves the Department of Internal Medicine and the Historical Center for the Health Sciences in their research activities.
