Region Congressman Pete Visclosky is one of 28 members of Congress to be named a “Champion of Science” by the Science Coalition, a non-profit group of fifty US research universities that advocate for federal investment in scientific research.
“Americans have long recognized the vital role that scientific research and innovation play in fostering economic growth and job creation,” Congressman Visclosky said. “We must not forget that local investments in science and technology development like Purdue University Calumet’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation have the potential to create not only new jobs, but new businesses and new industries that benefit all of us. We need to invest in our future to strengthen our manufacturing base and build upon it.”
The First Congressional District is also home to the Center on Logistics, Distribution, and Transportation at Ivy Tech, the Purdue Technology Center, and several key regional institutions of higher learning, including Purdue University North Central, Purdue University Calumet, Valparaiso University, and Indiana University Northwest. 
Visclosky is also a 2011 recipient of the Gerald I. Lamkin Fellow Award for Outstanding Achievement for Innovation & Service, the top individual award of The Society of Innovators.
