These world-class innovators are helping develop a local high tech ecosystem in collaboration with Discovery Park District at Purdue and Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN) community internet of things (IoT) testbeds. The 180,000+ square foot facility also boasts ISO Class 1 clean room space as part of the Scifres Nanofabrication Laboratory.
BINDLEY BIOSCIENCE CENTER
The Bindley Bioscience Center provides a unique infrastructure to support interdisciplinary research. Laboratory space and high-end scientific equipment is shared and available to support diverse projects, ranging from complex diseases to technology development to new catalysts for biofuels production. An expert staff provides research consultation and technical support to enable technology implementation, feasibility studies, and the generation of pilot data to support new project ideas.
MAURICE J. ZUCROW LABORATORIES
Zucrow Labs jet and rocket propulsion research facilities occupy a 24-acre site adjacent to the Purdue University Airport. The Laboratory's research capability encompasses many disciplines: aerodynamics of turbo machinery, aeroacoustics, combustion, measurement and control, computational fluid mechanics, particle flow heat transfer, and atomization processes.
PURDUE INSTITUTE FOR DRUG DISCOVERY
The three-story Drug Discovery Facility is designed to promote the discovery, design and development of new drugs through an innovative architecture that encourages collaborations in chemistry, medicinal chemistry and biology. The facility houses the Purdue Institute for Drug Discovery, and accommodates more than 100 multidisciplinary researchers with nine faculty offices. Meeting rooms and common areas on each floor facilitate interaction and collaboration. The building provides facilities for organic synthesis, including over 80 fume hoods, as well as cell culture, analytical chemistry, molecule purification, biochemistry and molecular biology, and fluorescent imaging.
HALL FOR DISCOVERY AND LEARNING RESEARCH
The Hall for Discovery and Learning Research has more than 56,000 assignable square feet, including 38,400 square feet for labs, offices, conferences and meetings. This building is home to the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN), Joint Transportation Research Program, Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources (CISTAR), Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience and the Purdue Institute of Inflammation, Immunology and Infectious Disease. It also houses an instrumentation lab, which is administered by Purdue’s Center for Analytical Instrumentation Development (CAID). The lab develops technologies for use in research in drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, and combating chemical and biological terrorism.
The Purdue University Airport opened in November 1930 as the first university-owned airport in the country. It encompasses 537 acres divided into airside and landside facilities. The airside includes two runways, a system of parallel taxiways and an apron area. The landside consists of two passenger terminal buildings, "T" hangars, automobile parking and the connecting road network. Also located at the airport are academic buildings serving the Aviation Technology program.
HYPERSONIC GROUND TEST CENTER
A first-of-its-kind in the U.S. facility to test hypersonic technologies will be constructed in the Purdue Aerospace District adjacent to the Purdue University campus, already a hotbed for hypersonics research and aerospace technology developments. The HGTC will be administered by a new nonprofit consortium of national defense industry partners that will manage capital and operational costs.
Purdue Research Foundation has executed a neutral host services agreement for the installation of fiber within Discovery Park District with Tilson, a telecommunications infrastructure company. This platform includes an edge data center located at the Convergence Center and fiber connectivity from the edge data center to each private tenant or user space, including every apartment, single-family residence, commercial office suite, commercial and research facility, and retail and public spaces.
FROM FLEXIBLE OFFICE SPACE TO GREENFIELD ACREAGE
Discovery Park District at Purdue has scalable options to suit every business need. The Purdue Research Foundation's Economic Development Office has helped Fortune 500 companies find flexible offices with shared conference rooms and startups to acquire and develop 20 acres of land for a flagship research facility. In the district, companies can count on finding the right fit.
