WORLD-CHANGING RESEARCH. POWERFUL CONNECTIONS.
Business can conduct research collaborations with Purdue University, a Top-3 research university, and advance their R&D capabilities.
The Convergence Center at Discovery Park District is your front door to Purdue University and the District. This new construction five-story, 143,000 square-foot, Class A professional office building is available for occupancy. Plant your flag right in the heart of the District, within walking distance of Purdue’s research centers, institutes and more than 35,000 students, 15,000 graduate students and 2,000 faculty.
ADAPTIVE LAB + STUDIO
Located in the heart of the District at the western edge of Purdue University, envision modular lab spaces facilitating a breadth of uses, from electronics, machining, CAD and maker-space functions—to higher acuity Bio/Chem lab needs complemented by smaller break-out, collaboration spaces for specific lab projects.
PURDUE TECHNOLOGY CENTER AEROSPACE
The 52,000-square-foot facility houses a research and development team for Rolls-Royce, Saab offices and features incubator space for other companies interested in aerospace and aviation development.
BIRCK NANOTECHNOLOGY CENTER
Researchers and scientists from six academic colleges working in Birck Nanotechnology Center are at the forefront of nanoelectronics, photonics, energy, micro electromechanical systems, nanobio technology and nanomanufacturing. These world-class innovators are helping develop a local high tech ecosystem in collaboration with the District and Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN) community internet of things (IoT) testbeds.
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 is the nation's largest university propulsion laboratory with jet and rocket propulsion research facilities that 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 UNIVERSITY AIRPORT
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.
HALL FOR DISCOVERY AND LEARNING RESEARCH
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.
BURTON D. MORGAN CENTER FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Purdue University’s innovation, entrepreneurship, and partnership programs are co-located in the Burton D. Morgan building in Discovery Park in an effort to streamline access to these programs. The Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship programs are housed in the facility along with the Office for Corporate and Global Partnerships.
This facility is home to the Institute for Global Security and Defense Innovation, Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering and Purdue Policy Research Institute. The facility also houses the Purdue Center for the Environment, Purdue Center for Global Food Security, Purdue Climate Change Research Center and Center for Global Soundscapes. These centers lead research in biofuels, solar, wind, clean coal, nuclear, batteries, water and hydrogen, as well as biodiversity, climate change, the carbon cycle, hydroclimatology, weather extremes and food security issues. Mann Hall is also home to the Institute Accessible Science Lab (IAS), State Utility Forecasting Group (SUFG), Institute for Plant Sciences, Laboratory for Agricultural Sensing and Analytics Research and National Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure.
PURDUE UNIVERSITY 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.
