Biological and Life Sciences

Purdue has recently made a large scale investment in the Life Sciences in order to coalesce novel research areas, highlighting our expertise in life sciences, while leveraging our engineering prowess and entrepreneurial abilities. Additionally, Discovery Park's main themes focus on the science of disease - examining everything from prediction and detection, to prevention, and treatment and multiple dimensions.

Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience:

Spanning 25 departments across six colleges, Purdue’s neuroscience enterprise already includes around 100 faculty with ongoing neuroscience-related research activities or interests. This deep pool of human resources has positioned Purdue well in several target research areas within the broad field of neuroscience, and the new center will synergize these efforts for national and international impact.

Purdue Institute for Immunology, Inflammation, and Infectious Disease:

The Purdue Institute for Inflammation, Immunology and Infectious Diseases (PI4D) leverages the significant diversity of life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering on campus to invent and integrate basic immunologic advances, new diagnostics, probe basic biological and inflammatory processes, and to develop and commercialize novel intervention methods to control an array of chronic inflammatory conditions, cancer and infectious diseases.

Center for Implantable Devices:

Located within the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University, the Center for Implantable Devices brings together faculty, clinicians, and industry collaborators for the purpose of maximizing clinical impact from ongoing research and discovery efforts in the design and manufacturing of implantable medical devices.
