Duchossois Family Institute

The Duchossois Family Institute: Harnessing the Microbiome and Immunity for Human Health was established on May 24, 2017, with a $100 million gift from Janet and Craig Duchossois and The Duchossois Family Foundation. The DFI aims to maximize good health and the economic, social, and personal benefits it delivers. With a research, clinical, and entrepreneurial infrastructure, the Duchossois Family Institute aims to reduce the time it takes to bring scientific breakthroughs from concept to market. Research breakthroughs by DFI scientists and University partners increase our understanding of immunology, genetics, and the microbiome. These discoveries are translated into potential new treatment options, and scientists conduct clinical trials to test intervention safety and efficacy. Partnerships with industry and investors bring new interventions to market.
