INDIANAPOLIS -

An Indianapolis-based health care data consulting company has announced a partnership with the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute. Perscio LLC says it will provide services including strategic planning, market research and health care data analysis.

Perscio President Kent Hiller says the company's goal is to "help IBRI accelerate its mission of enabling discovery science and innovation in collaboration with academic and industry researchers."

The partnership continues a busy year for the IBRI. In March, the institute launched an office in South Bend, as part of an effort to grow the IBRI footprint throughout the state. At the time, Chief Executive Officer David Broecker said the Innovation Park location would allow the organization to tap into researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators at the University of Notre Dame.

Later that month, the institute announced a partnership with Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY) and Dow AgroSciences LLC on a shared data platform. The collaboration focuses on potential human health and environmental side effects of using different molecules.

In 2015, Perscio announced expansion plans, including nearly 50 new jobs by 2019.
