The Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus has quickly developed a reputation for being home to game-changers, problem-solvers and innovative thinkers.

Built to encourage innovation, collaboration and challenge outmoded ideas, the Health Sciences Complex and the Tower at STAR are where big ideas, new discoveries and transformational approaches develop in the College of Health Sciences. Through interdisciplinary and interprofessional education that is also grounded in translational research, the STAR Campus is changing the future of healthcare – today.

Walk down the Translation Hallway in the Health Sciences Complex and see research labs on the right side of the hallway and clinics on the right. If that seems intentional, it is – research translates into clinical practice while findings in the clinics influence the research.

The Health Sciences Complex also is home to the Nurse Managed Primary Care Center, Delaware Physical Therapy Clinic and Speech Language Hearing Clinic, where more than 5,000 patients were helped across 30,000 visits. In its south end, a mix of wet lab incubator companies focus on cancer therapeutics, agriculture, composite materials and more.

Next door, the Tower at STAR is a 120,000-square-foot space devoted to collaborative research and innovation. With its research labs, demonstration kitchen, 300-person audion seating and more, it offers myriad opportunities for ideas to collide and become reality.

This spirit of innovation has created additional opportunities for collaboration and business growth.

Near the tower, construction continues on the Biopharmaceutical Innovation building, which also will serve as headquarters for the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals. NIIMBL partners more than 150 universities, private companies and nonprofit organizations to collaborate in this shared laboratory space.

Chemours also is constructing a 312,000-square-foot research and development headquarters on the STAR Campus, with a completion date scheduled for 2020.

Bringing the area together – and beyond – is the soon-to-be-finished Newark Regional Transportation Center.
