China is on a biological mission of extraordinary scale: to build the world's largest genomic biobank through the collection of 30 million samples. However, a project of such size and significance demands guidance from global experts, and Chinese leaders have selected Indianapolis-based BioStorage Technologies to be the program's technical consultant. The company is overseeing all of the processes, tools and technologies that underpin the ambitious project. As the only sample management firm involved in the undertaking, BioStorage will soon launch its technologies in China when the bank begins collecting its first samples early next year.
Six years ago, when the Indiana University School of Medicine threw its hat in the ring for an innovative new National Institutes of Health grant designed to advance translational research -- the art of taking results from the research lab or clinic into safe and innovative treatments and therapies used in general medical practice -- many outside our community were skeptical Indiana had the scientific wherewithal to compete with research powerhouses on the East and West coasts.
Inside INdiana Business, BioCrossroads and Indiana University have launched a new partnership to communicate the growth, success and excitement surrounding Indiana's life sciences industry. We share a belief that this innovative field plays a vital role in the development of the entrepreneurs, innovations and businesses that will allow Indiana to compete in a global economy. Life Sciences INdiana is published by the special projects unit of Grow INdiana Media Ventures LLC, the parent company of the Inside INdiana Business brand of business news products.
