Dean of Health Sciences
A once in a lifetime opportunity.
The University of Delaware is setting 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 will 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 will open and UD’s College of Health Sciences will be the first tenant to occupy the rehabbed building on the STAR Campus, 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 Complex will house clinics and core facilities for research in areas ranging from osteoarthritis and stroke to pediatric mobility and rehabilitation of wounded warriors. The building will also feature high-tech meeting and study places as well as space for businesses and organizations that complement the College of Health Science's mission.
Elsewhere on the STAR Campus, a fleet of 15 all-electric vehicles fitted with UD’s patented vehicle-to-grid technology is already earning money from the electric power grid, and Bloom Energy has begun production of its fuel-cell-based "Bloom Boxes."
An improved rail system will provide convenient, "green" transportation to the site for our clinical, academic, government, and business partners up and down the Eastern Seaboard in years to come.
The future of healthcare, renewable energy, and environmental sustainability depends on partnerships, and the STAR Campus is poised to provide a physical infrastructure where partnerships can develop and thrive.
Partner with us as we give new economic and intellectual life to a once-vital manufacturing site that was an important part of our community's history.
