The Origins of BioCrossroads
David Johnson, president and CEO of BioCrossroads, offers insight into the mission and vision for this statewide Life Sciences initiative.
One of the Nation's Top Five Life Sciences Leaders
There’s something about the Indianapolis Region that attracts life sciences innovators -- Colonel Eli Lilly, founding a medical wholesaler in the 1870s that’s grown into a global pharma/biotech leader. Bill Cook, taking The Cook Group from the spare bedroom of a Bloomington, Ind., apartment to a world medical manufacturing giant. In academia, cutting-edge research that’s mapped the human genome and pioneered cancer therapies. The list goes on ... and on ... and on.
Today, Indiana boasts a $50 billion life sciences sector and a spot among the nation’s top five states in number and concentration of life sciences jobs. The Indianapolis region ranks eleventh in the U.S. for life sciences employment.
The jobs, investment and growth stem from our heritage of life sciences innovation -- a competitive advantage for growing businesses in biotech. Where will the next breakthrough happen? Let’s work together to find out.

“A lot of the reason we chose Indianapolis is there’s tremendous access to local universities. For example, the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Purdue University offer great engineering talent. We’ve also interviewed people from IU’s Kelley School of Business to help boost our marketing presence as well.”
