Impacting Global Health

From innovative new treatment methods to game-changing healthcare delivery systems, Purdue scientists and researchers at Discovery Park are advancing efforts aimed at improving the health of people across the globe.

Discovery Park facilities are ideally suited for leading experts to collaborate on the science of disease, treatment methods and medical devices designed to improve people's quality of life. The research spans all disease areas — from mosquito-borne illnesses and Alzheimer's to AIDS and cancer. Purdue researchers collaborate across all key disciplines — including life sciences, physical sciences, engineering and even the humanities — to deliver world-changing medical breakthroughs, new diagnostics, and novel intervention methods. They employ their tools at scales from the atomic/nano all the way to whole organisms.

As researchers advance the understanding of the science of disease, a critical next step is delivering those innovations to patients who need them most. Purdue and Discovery Park are leading the emerging field of digital health, thanks to the University's historic strengths in engineering, life sciences and technology. Scientists at Discovery Park are driving high-impact improvements in healthcare delivery — making sure their discoveries are translated into better care for patients across the globe.

Through an interdisciplinary approach to research and innovation, Discovery Park is helping lead the world toward a brighter future of healthcare.

Discovery Park innovations are helping save lives.

Centers supporting the Global Health strategic theme work together by focusing on two key areas of global health. Purdue investigators are focused on the Science of Disease, and Digital Health.
