Through its management and staffing of the Center for Bioanalytic Metrology, a National Science Foundation Phase I Industry-University Cooperative Research Center, BIPH offers faculty and students a direct channel to some of the largest and most research-active companies in the world. The center funds research that addresses commercially-relevant problems and supports an ecosystem in which graduate students meet, work with, and get hired by leading industries in their fields.
BIPH works with the Notre Dame Office of Clinical Partnerships to help faculty and students identify and forge productive relationships with clinical practitioners that can advance their research. Research needs can include biological samples, physician collaborators, and the development of clinical studies.
BIPH faculty and staff are also active participants in the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, a statewide institute supported by a Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) and the National Center for Advancing Translational Science. Indiana CTSI is a collaboration between Indiana University, including the IU School of Medicine, Purdue University, and Notre Dame that provides a variety of support services to faculty and students across the state, include pilot grants, biospecimen services, and training and career opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students.
Instrumentation and Core Facility Partners
BIPH is committed to helping faculty and students access the instruments they need for their research. The institute supports the Analytical Science and Engineering at Notre Dame (ASEND) Core Facility, which is part of Notre Dame Research's comprehensive network of research facilities and resources. Through the Center for Bioanalytic Metrology, affiliated faculty also have access to some of the latest, top-of-the-line instruments provided by the center's Analytical Instrument Members. Finally, the institute provides direct support for technology development and instrument purchases or refurbishment through its various project funding programs.
