  • "The metropolitan area and region have formidable institutions, exemplified by the network of advanced companies, health care and the University Research Corridor. The distinct research strengths of universities and corporations are amplified by Detroit's demographic diversity, its relative affordability and the strong loyalty of current and former residents."
