Among the many innovators from Indiana, Bill Eason’s story is particularly interesting. As a chemical engineer, he was frustrated to learn that it takes 7 to 10 days to get blood test back. To develop a faster device, Eason left Ford Motor Company and tinkered around with a blood diagnostic device in his Indianapolis garage. The breakthrough came with the invention of Unimeter, the first point-of-care blood diagnostic device in the world that was a precursor to the now ubiquitous Accu-Chek brand. The invention changed the world of diabetes care forever. In the 1960s, Bill founded Bio-Dynamics to commercialize the product that later was acquired by Boehringer Mannheim, and finally the Roche Diagnostics’ North American division.

To spearhead innovation in Life Science, the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI) was founded in 2013. A public-private partnership, initiated by BioCrossroads with the support of the State of Indiana and research universities, the institute now led by a team of top scientists from  Lilly, Roche Diagnostics, Cook Medical, and Dow AgroSciences. The IBRI’s research facilities work on diabetes research, public health reach, bio market identification, big data integration, and toxigenomics platform.
