The Indiana life sciences community recently welcomed Aaron J. Vigil-Martinez as the Director of the Indiana Center for Biomedical Innovation (ICBI). He will also serve as the Director of Entrepreneurial Research for the IU School of Medicine. Aaron brings a successful track record and wealth of experience, including 4 years leading Indiana’s small business and entrepreneurial efforts at the Indiana Economic Development Corporation where he ushered in the state’s first national start-up accelerator program, was responsible for several public-private partnerships in strategic industry sectors, and delivered record-breaking years of new business creation and services to Hoosier small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Established in 2016, the ICBI leverages its unique partnership with IU Health, IU School of Medicine, the Indiana Clinical Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI), and the Office of Clinical Research (OCR). ICBI’s mission is to serve the bioscience entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing fully equipped laboratory facilities and robust entrepreneurial services to incubate a multitude of high-potential companies, entrepreneurial researchers and their discoveries on a path towards commercialization.
ICBI member companies, researchers, and entrepreneurs can seamlessly move from the bench to in vivo experiments and clinical trials via use of IU Health’s 12,000 sq. ft. medical laboratory equipped with all the necessary equipment and, most importantly, utilization of the Enterprise Clinical Research Operations’ (ECRO’s) certified staff, expertise, and administrative functions to ensure proper and effective clinical trial execution.
The ICBI is eagerly looking to expand its network of expertise, engage with new partners, and is looking to engage and serve IU Health physicians, clinicians, nurses, technicians, and any who may have a potential innovation, solution or entrepreneurial idea! The ICBI can be your resource whether it is to begin exploring opportunities, furthering discovery, advancing commercialization, or connecting to other resource partners to bring your innovation to fruition.
