Indiana’s life sciences industry boasts statistics that rival coastal hubs of activity and has gained national recognition for leadership. BioCrossroads has seized an opportunity to do more with the state’s life sciences 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? A vibrant and uniquely collaborative life sciences community that has consistently and dramatically increased its economic impact to the state –a $78 billion for 2017.
