Governor Spotlights STAR

In his first Joint Address to the General Assembly, Gov. John Carney noted Delaware is fostering a culture of innovation through partnerships with the STAR Campus.

The University of Delaware’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus is located just a half mile from the heart of UD’s primary academic campus.

STAR is already home to:

  • A performance computing company named by Forbes as one of America’s Most Promising Companies
  • A manufacturer of clean fuel-cell power sources whose energy servers provide power to Fortune 500 clients including Google, Wal-Mart, AT&T and Coca-Cola.
  • A test zero-emissions vehicle laboratory supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, the State of Delaware, NRG Energy, Honda and BMW.
  • UD’s Health Sciences Complex of classrooms, research laboratories, and open-to-the-public care clinics. Operating under the name STAR Health, UD’s comprehensive clinics offer major health and prevention services including: primary care, physical therapy, speech therapy, mental health services, care coordination, nutrition counseling, fitness counseling and health coaching.
    • Local residents can access high quality care and work directly with researchers developing advanced ways to treat illnesses and injuries.
    • UD students train to become the next generation of healthcare practitioners in the clinics, including one belonging to the world-class physical therapy department, a program ranked #1 by U.S. News and World Report.
  • A 10,000 square-foot wet lab that will serve as an incubator for small research companies
