Events at STAR
The University of Delaware has set the stage for the Science, Technology and Advanced Research Campus (STAR Campus) to be a center of innovation that will continue to evolve over the next half a century. The site’s activities and tenants focus on science, technology, engineering and clinical practice in areas ranging from biomedicine and biotechnology to alternative energy and environmental sustainability.
In January 2014, the Health Sciences Complex opened on the STAR Campus, and UD’s College of Health Sciences is the first tenant to occupy the renovated building, not only providing the front door to the site but also setting the stage for the campus as a vibrant healthy community by design. The facility is fostering community connections, interprofessional training of healthcare professionals, and collaborative research between faculty and clinicians.
The first building houses the Nurse Managed Health Center and the Delaware Physical Therapy Clinic, both of which are open to the public. In addition, the facility contains high-tech meeting spaces and state-of-the-art core labs for research and education in areas including muscle performance, gait analysis, anatomy, pediatric mobility, cardiovascular disease, biochemical and biomarker analysis, and orthopedic rehabilitation. The site is also home to the Delaware Rehabilitation Institute and the Delaware Health Sciences Alliance.
Tenant space will be available at an annex opening in Spring 2014 for companies whose areas of business complement the mission of UD’s College of Health Sciences.
