Nebraska-based Midwest Veterinary Services plans to invest approximately $10 million to build the Veterinary and Biomedical
Research Center (VBRC) in Pottawatomie County near Manhattan, Kan.
Minutes from the planned 500,000-square-foot, $650 million National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility now under construction
on the Kansas State University campus, the 20,000-square-foot research center will increase the presence of medical research
in the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor. VBRC will design and conduct research that guides potential products through the
FDA and USDA regulatory approval pathway for vaccine and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
