Purdue University set to host life science forum

Aug. 19, 2013
Discovery Park's Bindley Bioscience Center (BBC) at Purdue University will host life science industry leaders on September 6, 2013.

Discovery Park's Bindley Bioscience Center (BBC) at Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN) will host life science industry leaders on September 6, 2013, to engage in an open-dialogue forum to develop win-win collaborations that leverage key research and education resources and deliver near-real time results. The leadership of BBC hopes to better understand the research needs of industry, the gap in workforce knowledge, and the technical challenges in the coming decade. The BBC intends to create opportunities that tackle unmet needs in the field through industry-Purdue partnerships with a new vision. The expected outcome of the industry forum is to create a vision that will tailor research and educational resources that specifically and efficiently prepare the BBC and the university to deliver just-in-time solutions that meet the demands of our industry partners.
