About the Biomanufacturing Training and Education Initiative

The Biomanufacturing Training and Education Initiative will use funding of $5M allocated by the state of Kansas to support biomanufacuring training and education in the state. Funds will be used to:

  • Outfit and renovate space in Seaton Hall where course will be taught.
  • Purchase equipment for faculty who do research in the biosciences.
  • Support a constellation hire of faculty who will focus on biomanufacturing.

The purpose of the initiative is to provide a robust pipeline of talent to the expanding biomanufacturing industry in Kansas and beyond by providing students with practical training and skills, as well as to foster collaborative relationships between K-State and industry stakeholders.
