The Bindley Difference

HandshakeDeveloping commercial potential from Purdue life sciences research is part of our mission and working with corporate partners is our everyday business. As part of Purdue’s Discovery Park, The Bindley Bioscience Center (BBC) provides high-end capabilities for both well-established and start-up corporate partners. Our partners find advantage in the open, world-class laboratory environment that includes direct connection to the bionanotechnology capabilities of the adjacent Birck Nanotechnology Center. In addition, the BBC is an access portal to Purdue expertise and provides active project management for milestone-driven research. The focus is to understand specific goals of our partners and to provide custom collaborative solutions. The BBC also facilitates confidentiality and research agreements to shorten the timeline to results. Our unique collaborative approach provides not only access to Purdue technologies and expertise, but also a responsive and results-oriented partner.

Our custom approaches that utilize Discovery Park’s extensive research core capabilities are ideally suited to the needs of ourcorporate partners.
