The brand new state-of-the-art Forté Orthopedic Research Institute opened in the spring of 2022. The facility houses a full complement of training and development spaces for the next generation of healthcare professionals to advance knowledge in emerging orthopedic devices.

The Forté Orthopedic Research Institute has positioned itself as a unique set of labs that are independent of university health systems or commercial wet labs. Located on the north side of Indianapolis and near a booming healthcare and bioengineering hub, the institute is the perfect location to host your next event.

The facility features three bioskills labs that can be transitioned into a single 15 station training space. It also boasts a fast turn-around prep/cleaning room, ample storage, a modern A/V equipped boardroom, collaboration lounge, STEAM makerspace, and a large walk-in specimen storage freezer. Equipped utilities include compressed air, saline, and CAT 6 data.
