From pharmaceutical giants to small venture capital firms, our corporate partners cover the range of the life sciences value chain. They all share a common passion for the future of the life sciences and all its sectors, including pharmaceuticals, biotech, medical devices and equipment, insurance, finance, and providers. These partners collaborate with CBLS in a variety of ways, including funding research grants and awards, serving on our board, or mentoring our ambitious students.
Center Sponsor Jeff Albers, Executive Chairman and Former CEO, Blueprint Medical
Being able to combine the Kelley business skills I learned from my degree with my passion for life sciences was unique and a way for Alison and I to feel like we could make an impact for future students who share our desire to learn more about this space. Our hope is that our gift to the CBLS allows more students at IU to be exposed to the opportunities within life sciences where they can benefit society.
