Kansas Breaks Into Top 10 in the Nation in Biotech Strength
Date:7/23/2008

OLATHE, Kan., July 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A national site selection magazine has placed Kansas in its Top 10 list of states in the nation for biotechnology, along with states such as California, Massachusetts, and Illinois.

In its new annual rankings report, Business Facilities reported: "Kansas and Florida broke into the top 10 ranking for overall biotechnology strength this year; these two states have made it clear they intend to be major players in biotech."

The magazine noted Kansas' "special financing programs to support commercial bioscience facilities" and other state highlights:

-- Kansas was ranked number 4 in the nation for state bioscience investments.

-- Kansas was ranked number 5 for bioscience research funding.

-- Kansas was ranked number 10 for education climate.

-- Kansas was ranked number 13 for most educated workforce.

-- The Kansas City area was ranked number 10 among metropolitan areas for the highest concentration of employment in research, testing and medical laboratories.

These rankings follow Kansas' positive showing in other recent national reports that also brought attention to the state's areas of bioscience strength, increases in R&D funding, and growth in bioscience venture capital.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius said the state's proactive approach to bioscience was paying off. "Momentum in bioscience and biotechnology is clearly building in Kansas, and that's not by accident," Sebelius said. "We're investing in research and industry in a very focused and strategic way through the Kansas Bioscience Authority, and we're aggressively promoting our state's areas of bioscience expertise."

Secretary of Commerce Dave Kerr said, "Our state's bioscience successes are getting the attention they deserve. In just the last year, Fort Dodge Animal Health and ThermoFisher Scientific announced major expansion plans; three bioscience eminent scholars chose to come home to Kansas
