Two great universities. Two premier programs. One extraordinary partnership

A unique partnership between Indiana University School of Medicine and the Purdue University College of Engineering leverages the strengths of two premier research institutions to lead inter-disciplinary educational programs and translate laboratory discoveries into life-saving medical products. Situated within the world-class life sciences sector in Indiana, the largest medical school and the largest among the top ten engineering schools in the United States partner to innovate graduate training and to generate solutions to healthcare challenges.

This collaboration has already produced a growing body of prospering alumni and has a productive history of launching life science companies and licensing clinical technologies that have directly benefited millions of patients worldwide. In 2019, the partnership is broadened and deepened through multiple initiatives in basic and applied medical science and engineering. Recent record-setting research growth at both institutions has positioned IU Medicine and Purdue Engineering to be one of the most productive translational research enterprises in the world.

Medicine is key to the future of engineering, with biomedical engineering front and center but important roles as well for nearly all engineering disciplines. We are grateful for our long, productive relationship with IU School of Medicine, including our ongoing MD/PhD program. Our collaboration is now strengthened with the simultaneous launch of multiple new programs that will help elevate engineering-medicine synergy through cross-disciplinary education, research and innovation.
