The STAR Health Sciences Complex houses core labs for use by teams of clinical and academic researchers. These shared spaces encourage basic scientists, clinicians, physician scholars, and students to work together conducting interdisciplinary and translational research that changes people’s lives.

STAR Health Sciences Complex is adjacent to the University of Delaware’s main campus and directly across the street from the UD Athletics Complex, which boasts a 23,000 seat stadium and the Bob Carpenter Center.

The development spans multiple phases through strategic development partner Delle Donne & Associates. Phase I highlights the knowledge and research expertise of the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences. Phase II focuses on industry integration with businesses in areas of University research where companies want to be near our next generation workforce.

The STAR Health Sciences Complex is conveniently located along the I-95 corridor between New York and Washington, D.C. with easy access to the interstate. Transit is also expanding with not only University buses providing transportation to the main campus but also through the Newark Regional Transportation Center, which provides services via SEPTA and Amtrak. Construction is underway to improve the current train station and expand services.

A new direction in healthcare through education and research.

Taking the future of healthcare to new heights by focusing on the science of health and using innovation, research, education, and care to improve health and wellness.
