Date:3/31/2009

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One of the nation's leading independent research institutes is expanding in Kansas as the region's scientific assets align to support the critical mission of protecting the American food supply and to develop urgently needed bioenergy solutions.

Officials at Midwest Research Institute (MRI) announced today that they are expanding MRI's existing operations by establishing a wholly owned subsidiary of the Institute that will be named Midwest Research Institute-Kansas, LLC, and headquartered in Manhattan, Kan., at the Manhattan/K-State Innovation Center. The new subsidiary will support economic development opportunities in the animal health, biosecurity, and advanced energy business sectors, areas of common interest that MRI officials have collaborated on with leaders from Kansas State University (K-State) and the state of Kansas for several years.

"This is an important day in MRI history," said James L. Spigarelli, MRI President and CEO. "Establishing a physical presence in Kansas in addition to the Institute's strong and historic presence in Missouri will enable MRI to significantly strengthen its support of vital scientific research in our bi-state region. We look forward to many new opportunities ahead."

"Research and development in animal health, biosecurity and advanced energy are important areas that will drive economic development for our state," said Kansas Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson. "We are very pleased that MRI, with nationally recognized expertise in these areas, has chosen to expand in Kansas. The Institute's presence here and in Missouri will create new opportunities to leverage the strength of a bi-state approach in solving critical national challenges."

Spigarelli also announced that Michael F. Helmstetter will serve as President of Midwest Research Institute-Kansas, LLC. Helmstetter is E
