About Us

The Delaware Biotechnology Institute is a magnet for life science research and development. We support multidisciplinary, collaborative academic research at all of Delaware’s research organizations including the University of Delaware, Delaware State University, Christiana Care Health System, Nemours / AI DuPont Hospital for Children, Wesley College, and Delaware Technical and Community College. We foster academic-industrial research partnerships and work to support the local bioscience industry (from start-ups to multinationals) in partnership with the Delaware Bioscience Association. We are also committed to inspiring the next generation scientist and the professional development of their teachers through our Science for All Delawareans outreach programs.

Our Institute is the physical home to a number of research laboratories with scientists, students, and faculty working on problems related to agriculture, human health, and energy and the environment. Our Institute is also home to a number of high end instrumentation facilities that are accessible for use by the entire life science community in Delaware and our infrastructure, mission, and staff allow us to support life scientists (academic, not for profit, and industrial) from around the region. Our research has been recognized internationally and our Science Changes the World.
