About Us

The Pillars of Excellence in the Life Sciences Initiative, which is implemented as a partnership of the pillar leadership teams and the offices of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships and Provost, is housed in Purdue’s high-profile, interdisciplinary Discovery Park. The Pillars coalesce Purdue’s considerable strengths across related disciplines to bring a concerted focus to areas of emerging national importance in the life sciences. In a time of declining federal support, Purdue’s strategic investment in these areas offers exciting opportunities for current and future faculty. A multi-million dollar investment in high-throughput screening instrumentation and the establishment of a chemical genomics facility for the Purdue Center for Drug Discovery are planned, as are new core facilities in the neurosciences and upgrades to existing core facilities in Discovery Park. These facilities will support the wealth of talent and scientific expertise in the life sciences at Purdue.
