KansasBio is a unified voice representing the biosciences in Kansas. Across the human, plant, animal and industrial biosciences, KansasBio is focused on enhancing the business and research climate and working with leaders across the state to attract and retain bioscience talent, companies and funding.

From Kansas City to Hays, Manhattan to Wichita, and Atchison to Garden City, KansasBio represents the bioscience continuum from the university laboratories to the established pharmaceutical, animal health and crop science companies, and all the entrepreneurial ventures, start-ups and service providers in the heart of the continuum.

KansasBio was founded in 2004 by the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation and the Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute, who recognized the need to unify Kansas’ bioscience industry, academic research institutions and economic development organizations.

KansasBio is a state affiliate organization of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO). BIO is a national organization representing more than 1,000 biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers and related organizations in all 50 U.S. states and 33 other nations.
