Last spring, the Office of the Provost and the Office of Research and Partnerships launched an initiative to advance and invest in the life sciences at Purdue. A Faculty Town Hall meeting was convened to discuss ideas for new initiatives in the life sciences and a request for concept papers for Pillars of Excellence in the Life Sciences was released in March. As a result, ten faculty teams were selected to present their concepts for Pillars of Excellence for review by Purdue faculty and staff.
