Purdue University Bindley Bioscience Engineering Center
LocationWest Lafayette, Indiana
CertificationDesigned to 2 Green Globes
A cornerstone of Purdue's Discovery Park, the Bindley Bioscience Center serves as the functional anchor of this new science complex. This biomedical engineering facility is a catalyst for researchers in Purdue's life sciences and engineering disciplines, allowing them to collaborate on solutions for biological and medical problems. The overall building design supports this through social interaction spaces, which are conducive to spontaneous conversations and collaboration among researchers.
Laboratory space is modularly configured to accommodate the dynamic nature of the research projects within the center. With six large, flexible labs, the building is considered an “engine” for harvesting research innovations.
The center's potential for both education and research lay in its unusual organization,
offering opportunities for multidisciplinary research not to be found elsewhere. What makes it unique is that our
students can work together with scientists, engineers, and specialists in informatics. Many disciplines will work
together. Our students will have opportunities to study not only with their major professor,
but also with faculty in related fields.
