PHSI calls home to Discovery Park, which provides open, collaborative research environments where interdisciplinary projects are connected throughout Purdue, Purdue Research Park, and the world. In 2001, Purdue University's Discovery Park was just an idea, launched with a $5 million commitment from the state of Indiana for a nanotechnology center. Today, it is more than a $1.15 billion research and learning complex of centers and institutes, where faculty and students use an interdisciplinary approach to tackle the global challenges (http://www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/about/history.php, 2016).
