About Us

Indiana is now one of the top five states in the U.S. for number of life sciences employees (BIO/Battelle Technology Practice, 2013).  The state’s life sciences industry boasts statistics that rival coastal hubs of activity and has gained national recognition for leadership in the life sciences.  BioCrossroads seized an opportunity to do more with the state’s life sciences corporate and academic assets and bolsters tremendous growth to the sector by building unique collaborations, marketing its strengths, igniting a capital market, moving research from laboratory to the patient, and developing a one-of-a-kind institute to accelerate research and commercialization. The result is a vibrant and uniquely collaborative life sciences state-wide community that has increased its economic impact to the state by $27 billion in just eleven years ($32B in 2002 and $59B in 2013).
