About Us

Founded in 2008, the Kelley School's Center for the Business of Life Sciences was started with the belief that life sciences companies are essential economic drivers for growth and employment. To ensure the success of the industry as a whole, however, requires a broad collaboration of science and business acumen. CBLS brings together students, faculty, life science companies and other corporate partners to:

  • attract top students interested in careers in life sciences and develop them into strong future leaders for the life sciences industry
  • support research on significant issues and questions faced within the industry
  • provide a forum allowing companies and other corporate partners to connect with industry-focused students
  • create significant networking opportunities for students, faculty, companies and friends to connect in order to strengthen Indiana's life science industry

CBLS activities include:

This center is just one part of Indiana University's commitment to the life sciences.
