Eli Lilly and Roche Diagnostics are among anchors of a new $360 million public-private research institute being launched by Indiana life-sciences and government leaders, with the twin goals of studying metabolic disorders and growing the Hoosier State’s biopharma industry.

The new Indiana Biosciences Research Institute will initially focus on four metabolic disorders: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and nutrition. Joining Lilly and Roche Diagnostics in launching the institute are Cook Medical, Dow AgroSciences, Biomet, and Indiana University Health, along with the office of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence; academic institutions that include Indiana University, Purdue University, and the University of Notre Dame; and BioCrossroads, a nonprofit that promotes life-sci growth statewide.
