Also, BioCrossroads has produced four leading Indiana life sciences reports since 2008 covering biopharmaceutical development, health information technology, orthopedics and Indiana's overall life sciences industry. These reports have helped elevate the regional and national visibility of each of these sectors as centers of innovation and excellence.

In a related development, Lilly Endowment also awarded a two-year $1.6 million grant to the CICP Foundation for the operations and expansion of the I-STEM Resource Network. Launched and sponsored by BioCrossroads, the network is a statewide consortium of higher education institutions managed by Purdue University which draws upon the efforts of 17 other universities, colleges and other institutions of higher learning around Indiana. The I-STEM initiative represents a unique and shared mission by these stakeholders to provide professional development for K-12 teachers that should result in measurable improvement in student achievement in the STEM disciplines. Such achievement is vital in preparing Indiana's next generation for some of the state's best opportunities in top fields, such as the life sciences, that draw heavily upon skills in mathematics and science.

"Lilly Endowment is pleased to support BioCrossroads' growing impact on the development of Indiana's nationally significant life sciences cluster," said N. Clay Robbins, Endowment president. "One of the Endowment's objectives is to help foster rewarding economic opportunities for Indiana residents. The flourishing of the state's life sciences cluster should result in the creation of many more such opportunities, which in turn should benefit residents and strengthen communities throughout Indiana.
