OSU’s Innovation District to Bring Advances in Health Care, Research

Three towering cranes with double booms have loomed over West Campus at Ohio State University for the past year. The construction signals the sky-high expectations for the novel, health-focused research activity that will soon be located there.

Twenty-five years ago, this type of high-tech bioscience campus wasn’t even a dream. By fall, though, construction was well underway for what you might call Silicon Valley East, but which Ohio State has dubbed the Innovation District.

If you sort through the technical jargon and design blueprints, what you’ll find are laboratories and medical facilities that will be using head-spinning scientific advancements that involve proton therapies that treat cancer, the manufacturing of gene therapies and so much more.
