(WEST LAFAYETTE) - Purdue University is dedicating a new 55,000-square-foot research park that it says will help high-tech entrepreneurs create new businesses, develop new technology and expand life sciences research in Indiana.

The Purdue Research Park at Ameriplex in Indianapolis will accommodate up to 75 businesses and create 1,500 jobs with an average annual salary of $54,000 dollars.

Research parks are situated along I-65 from Northwest Indiana to Southeast Indiana, supporting nearly 200 companies and providing jobs for more than 3,200 people.

The university has established three other research parks in the state: one in West Lafayette, another in Merrillville and a third in New Albany.
