INDY'S LIFE SCIENCES ADVANTAGE
Recognized as one of the nation's top four life sciences communities, the Central Indiana region offers many advantages for life sciences companies: diverse industry base, intellectual capital, academic partnerships, a skilled and available workforce, business and industry collaborations.
Combined, these have made Indianapolis a fertile ground for life sciences companies—and a place that is continually attracting new life sciences dollars and support. Several local initiatives ensure Indy remains synonymous with life sciences:
BIOCROSSROADS: Statewide initiative to advance the life sciences sector that has raised more than $235 million for Indiana life science opportunities.
INDIANA HEALTH INDUSTRY FORUM: Alliance of manufacturers, healthcare providers, suppliers, educational institutions, service providers and government officials working to enhance business networks, develop workforce skills and provide strategic vision to grow Indiana’s health industry.
INDIANA HEALTH INFORMATION EXCHANGE: Regional health information network – considered the most advanced in the United States – focused on delivering information at the most critical time: at the point-of-care.
INDIANA MEDICAL DEVICE MANUFACTURERS COUNCIL, INC: Association of nearly 60 medical device manufacturers and other companies that work on behalf of the broader medical device industry in Indiana.
These efforts are bringing together research and academia with government and industry. And the result has been strategic collaborations that are enhancing both new and organic business development.
