Research Institutes

Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute — Anantha Shekhar, MD, PhD, director 

The Indiana CTSI, funded by a Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Institutes of Health, is a collaborative medical research initiative led by Indiana and Purdue universities to implement new programs to accelerate translational research, train new translational researchers, interact with community health-care professionals and the public, build research resources and technologies, support Indiana University's patient clinical trials, and leverage Hoosier resources with health care, business, government and foundation partnerships.

Indiana Institute for Personalized Medicine — David A. Flockhart, MD, PhD, director

The Indiana Institute for Personalized Medicine explores how genetic information and environmental exposure affect each person's risk to develop certain diseases and response to medication.

Institute of Psychiatric Research — John I. Nurnberger Jr., MD, PhD, director

The specific mission of IPR is to apply the methods of genetics and neurobiology to understand neuropsychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder.

Krannert Institute of Cardiology — Peng-Sheng Chen, MD, director

Research at the internationally recognized Krannert Institute includes studies ranging from molecular mechanisms to clinical treatments in a wide range of cardiac related problems. Major areas of emphasis include cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmias, cardiac ultrasound, vascular biology, heart failure and transplantation, interventional cardiology, regeneration, and the repair of cardiac muscle and cardiac cell proteins. Integration between basic and clinical research is the hallmark of this institute.

Regenstrief Institute, Inc. — William Tierney, MD, president & CEO

The Regenstrief Institute conducts research to improve health care by optimizing the capture, analysis, content, and delivery of the information needed by patients, their providers and policy makers and conducts interventional studies designed to measure the effect of the application of this research on the efficiency and quality of health care.

Stark Neurosciences Research Institute — Gerry S. Oxford, PhD, executive director

The Stark Neuroscience Research Institute includes researchers from various disciplines and focuses on applying advances in molecular, genetic and imaging technologies to fundamental questions about brain function, dysfunction and development.
