WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University will be expanding its capacity to “create, verify and deliver” innovative solutions in the healthcare field with the further development of the university’s Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering.

This center, according to a release from Purdue, will further enhance the Regenstrief Foundation’s mission through multidisciplinary approaches to medicine in its health care research.

“We first will listen to the communities we serve,” said Pavlos Vlachos, director of RCHE and the St. Vincent Health Professor of Healthcare Engineering. “Our holistic approach puts the community and patient at the center of everything we do. We want to listen to patients and clinicians, to identify needs, and then harness Purdue’s vast talent to develop, test and validate solutions. RCHE will act as a bridge carrying the benefits of research and discovery directly to the people they are designed to help.”
