National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility

NBAF – Kansas State University has been selected as the future home of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF) – once again highlighting the state’s deep agricultural heritage, bioscience expertise, research infrastructure, world-class animal health industry, and strong public support.

The $1.25 billion research facility will provide the country with an urgently needed, state-of-the-art lab to protect the food supply and agriculture economy. Kansas is exceptionally well suited to accelerate the achievement of this mission. The new facility will research and develop countermeasures to combat “high-consequence biological threats involving human, zoonotic (i.e., transmitted from animals to humans), and foreign animal diseases.”
