About Us

Iowa State University Research Park was founded to provide the space and resources needed to advance science-based initiatives.

ISU Research Park is operated by the ISU Research Park Corporation. The ISU Research Park Corporation was established in 1987 as a not-for-profit, independent, corporation operating under a Board of Directors appointed by Iowa State University and the ISU Foundation

ISU Research Park owns and operates 10 of 12 buildings on its campus, including technology and wet-dry lab incubators. The additional 2 buildings are owned and operated by private development groups. Construction is underway on 2 more buildings, slated for completion in 2017.


Currently, ISU Research Park tenants employ more than 1,700 employees — a number projected to more than double by 2025. Approximately 300 student interns are employed at ISU Research Park at any given time. Companies that have relocated from ISU Research Park still employ nearly 2,500 Iowans — proving that ISU Research Park has significant impact well beyond Ames.

In its more than 25 years serving researchers and businesses, ISU Research Park has seen incredible growth and even more amazing innovation from its tenants. 

Some of the breakthroughs that have taken place at ISU Research Park include:

  • Development of an ebola vaccine from NewLink Genetics
  • Secure cloud-based financial reporting from Workiva (formerly WebFilings)
  • Genome editing in commercial crops by Phytodyne, now a part of BASF Plant Sciences
  • Thin, flexible solar panel film that can serve both military and personal purposes from PowerFilm
  • Visualization, 3-D rendering and data analysis utilized for disaster planning and preparedness by Priority 5
