Our Initiatives

BioCrossroads fuels Indiana's life sciences industry by developing paths for building upon our state and regional strengths. 

Fostering Connections, Fueling Research and Development, and Igniting Innovation

Starting from a firm foundation of proven academic and industry assets, BioCrossroads has launched several businesses and industry/academic collaborations IN life sciences who exist to pursue new, innovative opportunities. The organization also has provided a platform for the launch of other enterprises, including funding and science education initiatives.
