Midwest Research Institute Expands in Kansas to Support Regional Economic Development in Animal Health, Biosecurity, and Bioenergy Sectors
Date:3/31/2009

o and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF) that will be built on the K-State campus. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced their decision to locate NBAF in Manhattan in January 2009. The facility is not expected to be fully operational until 2015, but it is critical to the nation's security that the NBAF mission gets underway before then. This new MRI-K-State venture will focus on jump-starting NBAF research, development, testing, and evaluation at K-State's Biosecurity Research Institute and on providing biocontainment management and operations services under an agreement with the Kansas Bioscience Authority (KBA).
  • Advanced Energy R&D - With its extensive background in renewable energy research, MRI will align the new Midwest Research Institute-Kansas, LLC, with K-State's energy research and those of its commercialization arm, the National Institute for Strategic Technology Acquisition and Commercialization (NISTAC), to collaborate on advanced energy research and accelerate technology commercialization. MRI, K-State and Burns & McDonnell recently signed a "Biotroleum Alliance" to develop and deploy alternative energy technologies geared toward carbon mitigation and energy efficiency.

  • "The synergies between K-State and MRI are powerful," said Ron Trewyn, K-State's Vice President for Research. "By collaborating and working together, we will have the capability to seamlessly move new discoveries, whether they are in animal health, biosecurity, or energy, from basic research through development to the commercialization and deployment of new technologies and products that will protect and benefit society. We are very pleased that MRI chose the K-State Research Park for their Kansas subsidiary."

    "The NBAF is one of the single most significant accomplishments we have achieved in recent years to stimulate economic development and to highlight our national bioscience
