Purdue University and Elanco Animal Health Inc. will join Indiana’s new One Health Innovation District, as announced at Indiana’s 2024 Global Economic Summit. Purdue President Mung Chiang and Elanco President Jeff Simmons signed a memorandum with the Indiana Economic Development Corp. to establish a research innovation district focused on optimizing health for people, animals, plants, and the planet.

The partners will develop a shared-use facility on 3 acres near Elanco’s future global headquarters in Indianapolis. This facility will feature office, lab, and incubator space to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Elanco also plans to expand by purchasing an additional 12 acres. The One Health Innovation District aims to integrate human, animal, and plant health research, involving entities like Eli Lilly and Corteva Agriscience. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb highlighted the district’s role in creating a regional technology hub. The partnership intends to attract top talent and drive growth in Indianapolis, with plans to host a One Health Summit in the fall.
