Op-Ed: The NBAF Would Build on Kansas' Existing Strengths in Bioscience
Date:3/13/2008

It doesn't hurt that Manhattan also is geographically in the thick of the nation's agricultural economy.

In addition, the Kansas Bioscience Authority is investing considerably in K-State's continued success. A recent $2.5 million commitment to attract researchers from across the nation to K-State's Biosecurity Research Ins
