Some of Indiana’s top life sciences companies and research universities have formed a biosciences institute that Gov. Mike Pence calls “a big deal” to spur scientific innovation and lure new jobs, investment and leading scientists to the state.
The Indiana Biosciences Research Institute announced Thursday is a collaboration involving Eli Lilly & Co., Dow AgroSciences, Roche Diagnostics, Cook Group, Biomet Orthopedics, Indiana University Health and the life sciences industry group BioCrossroads.
Purdue University, Indiana University and the University of Notre Dame have also joined the institute, which will help turn scientific discoveries at those schools into commercial products.
