The Greater Manhattan Economic Partnership’s business-friendly environment, biosecurity expertise and world-class agriculture research capacity make us something special. Our region is unlike any other place you’re considering.
Home to Kansas State University, a land-grant institution and Big 12 member, this region in between the coasts is exactly where your next site should be. For a century and a half, we’ve leveraged our location (and our 130,000 citizens’ Midwestern work ethic) to become the center of the biodefense world, a leader in crop and grain innovations, and a premier cluster of agricultural expertise.
As the USDA National Bio and Agro-Defense Facililty (NBAF) opens the first BSL-4 laboratory in the U.S. capable of housing cattle and other livestock, our region further cements itself as the anchor of the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor. Manhattan will continue to be a critical research nexus to combat zoonotic diseases, create diagnostics and treatments, and develop animal vaccines, bringing together public and private entities to combat the next global pandemic.
