INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana's fledgling biosciences institute is getting more than $100 million to help spur its collaborations between industry and academia.

Officials announced Wednesday that the Lilly Endowment is making an $80 million grant to the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute and Eli Lilly and Co. Foundation is adding $20 million.

The announcement comes as the institute prepares to break ground on its new 75,000-square-foot site near downtown Indianapolis that will anchor a 50-acre technology park.

Eli Lilly and Co. senior vice president Darren Carroll tells The Indianapolis Star the funding amount is enough to start a sustainable research institute.
