The first ever Kansas Bioscience day was held at the Capitol Wednesday. Activities included an exhibition of bioscience research and business projects supported by the Kansas bioscience authority.
The Kansas bioscience authority is a $581 million dollar initiative and state agency, created by the legislature to expand Kansas's research capacity and support the growth of bioscience.
The Kansas Bioscience Authority also announced that Professor Blake Peterson of the University of Kansas is one of it's eminent scholars. The school will receive five million dollars and a five year grant from KBA to be matched by KU.
