​Industry & Government Partnerships

Protecting America and its citizens through research

In today’s complex world, research partnerships are crucial to protecting America, both its many citizens and the nation itself. Indiana University continues to build these partnerships with various divisions of the U.S. Department of Defense, such as Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, located in Southern Indiana.

IU researchers such as Chandan Sen, a leading expert in regenerative medicine, are studying new ways to heal burns, address diabetic complications, treat injured soldiers, and even regrow damaged and diseased tissue. Our productive research relationships are leading to many innovative projects with powerful, real-world impact.
