Kansas Invests Millions in Innovations to Improve Human Health and Launches Three National Bioscience Programs at BIO'08
Date:6/18/2008

oubling its floor space with a dedicated 50-bed clinical research facility for Phase I trials, and hiring 38 full- and part-time employees over the next three years.

National programs

At the Bio International Convention in San Diego, the KBA also kicked off its new Collaborative Cancer Research Initiative, which launches with $2.5 million in funding for cancer researchers across the country who partner with Kansas researchers on projects that leverage the state's expertise and facilities.

The initiative will enhance cancer research excellence in Kansas -- and nationally -- by introducing investigators to the state's research facilities and strong expertise in drug discovery, delivery, and development. Academic, federal, and non-profit researchers are invited to collaborate with Kansas scientists at the University of Kansas Cancer Center and elsewhere to perform cancer research not possible at their home institutions.

Ray Smilor, executive director of the Beyster Institute at the Rady School of Management at the University of California at San Diego and a KBA director, said entrepreneurs looking for bioscience opportunities should look in Kansas.

"Investors are finding tremendous opportunities for growth in Kansas," Smilor said. "It's not just the state's great cancer research or clinical trials capabilities -- Kansas is building world-class strength in the human health sector by tackling global problems."

Two other programs first announced in Kansas in recent months also made their national debut at BIO'08.

The $2.5 million Collaborative Biosecurity Research Initiative builds on the state's existing strength in the animal health sector and seeks to bring together researchers nationwide to create products that protect Americans from animal-borne diseases that could harm the food supply, disrupt the national agriculture economy, or infect humans.
