The beautiful year-round scenery of the Manhattan, Kansas, area welcomes thousands of federal and local government authorities. The recent additions of two vitally important government projects are welcome assets to the area.
Kansas State University (KSU) is known for its major advancements in science and technology. For example, it is home to the Biosecurity Research Institute (BRI), a secure laboratory where the study of high-consequence pathogens can be studied in complete safety. It is designed for Bio Safety Level-3 research, with space available for selected commercial projects by application.
The $1.25 billion research facility will provide the country with an urgently needed, state-of-the-art lab to protect the food supply and agriculture economy. Kansas is exceptionally well suited to accelerate the achievement of this mission. The new facility will research and develop countermeasures to combat “high-consequence biological threats involving human, zoonotic (i.e., transmitted from animals to humans), and foreign animal diseases.”
The NBAF will be operated under the authority of the United States Department of Homeland Security, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agriculture Research Service (USDA-ARS) and Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, Veterinary Services (USDA-APHIS-VS) as primary research partners.
The facility, currently under construction, is located in Manhattan, KS. The 520,000 square foot facility is scheduled to be completed by 2020, become operational in 2022 and will employ up to approximately 350 people.
