Nurturing Innovation

We believe in science coupled with real-life impact, where innovation brings discovery to market. Located in 39 North, we are a driver in building a stronger innovation community, helping grow a 21st century economy to meet the challenges ahead.


We are committed to enhancing the St. Louis region as a world center for plant science and to creating new jobs in this sector. The most visible result of this commitment is the Bio Research & Development Growth (BRDG) Park located on our campus. BRDG and EDGE@BRDG serve as a vital resource to startups and mid-stage companies, the North American headquarters of international companies, and an on-site workforce training and equipment loan program. Tenants have access to more than $50M in core technologies at the Danforth Center and interactions with some of the world’s top scientists.
