K-STATE TAKES PART IN RECYCLEMANIA
K-State's expertise in vaccine development, diagnostics, animal disease detection and education programs formed the basis for the university's selection as a Center of Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Diseases by the Department of Homeland Security, said K-State President Kirk Schulz. K-State will receive $12 million over the next six years.
K-State will partner with Texas A&M University's Foreign Animal and Zoonotic Disease Defense Center to co-lead the Science and Technology Directorate's efforts to involve university researchers in zoonotic and animal disease detection.
Juergen Richt, a Regents Distinguished Professor in K-State's College of Veterinary Medicine, is principal investigator and the center's director.
