As Other States Pull Back, Kansas Accelerates Innovation Investments at Bio International Convention
Date:5/19/2009

nering to form this center are Wichita State University, the National Institute of Aviation Research, the Wichita Composites Advisory Board, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, and Via Christi Health. It is expected to increase employment in Kansas by 2,000 over 10 years.

This brings the number of approved centers of innovation to four after the March approval of the Kansas Bioscience Innovation Center in Drug Delivery and Kansas Bioenergy and Biorefining Center of Innovation.

Cancer drug development

Adding to the investment of more than $32 million in drug discovery and delivery projects in March, the KBA is committing another $1.9 million this month:

  • Lenexa-based CyDex Pharmaceuticals will receive $195,000 to commercialize re-formulated drugs that address limitations of existing therapies. A focus will be improving a cancer drug for patients with multiple myeloma (cancer of the Plasma B cells formed in the bone marrow).

  • CritiTech and SCF Technologies of Lawrence were awarded $50,000 to further develop a novel approach to converting drugs into dry, sterile powder form. The process is expected to significantly reduce costs in drug manufacturing, while easing the process of administering drugs for both physicians and patients. The investment is a partial match to a $100,000 grant from the National Cancer Institute.

  • Manhattan-based NanoScale will use $50,000 in KBA matching funds to expedite the testing of nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic uses in fighting cancer. These "stealth" particles are expected to allow earlier disease detection and to improve the ability of drugs to hit their intended targets with fewer side effects. The company received a $150,000 Small Business Innovation Research awa
