BIOCROSSROADS IS A CATALYST
FOR LIFE SCIENCES IDEAS

Partnership

By partnering with Indiana’s research institutions, global companies, philanthropic organizations and government to advance growth and innovation, we make connections for all of Indiana’s life sciences community and work to accelerate its success.

A Top Region for Life Sciences Activity

Indiana is one of the top regions in the U.S. for life sciences activity. It 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 bolster 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.

Economic Impact

The result is a vibrant and uniquely collaborative life sciences state-wide community with a $78 billion economic impact. The magic combination of Indiana’s depth and breadth of life sciences resources together with BioCrossroads’ continuing ability to harness those assets into actionable outcomes like the organization of venture funds, the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute development, and the generation of other unique private-public partnerships is unprecedented and has secured a strategy for Indiana’s economic future as well as for the health of its citizens and the rest of the world.
