Partner with the National Bio and Agro-defense Facility
The National Bio and Agro-defense Facility's arrival brings new possibilities for businesses in what has been called the "Silicon Valley for biodefense." Once operational, it is expected to employ 350 people full-time. NBAF also is expected to bring an additional 40 businesses and laboratories and generate an economic return of $3.5 billion in its first 20 years.
Kansas State University, KSU Foundation and the City of Manhattan have partnered to develop the Edge Collaboration District and expand the university's research and commercial office parks to offer flexible office and laboratory space adjacent to the NBAF facility.
