Book of Data and Organizations Goes Digital

Connecting IN Life Sciences

BioCrossroads has transformed its Book of Data and Organizations into a fully digital "wiki" for Indiana's health data assets. This resource was developed alongside Indiana University data science students to help streamline information sharing for more than 50 enterprises across industry, government, health systems, academia, and startups. 

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 and has gained national recognition for leadership sector-wide. BioCrossroads has seized an opportunity to do more with Indiana's life sciences corporate and academic assets, bolstering tremendous connection and growth by fostering 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.

Capital, Connections, and Collaboration

The magic combination of Indiana’s depth and breadth of life sciences resources together with BioCrossroads’ 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.
