The University of Missouri System is pleased to announce a regional summit led by the University of Missouri-Columbia and hosted by the University of Missouri-Kansas City in collaboration with the Kansas City Area Development Council.
With the Animal Health Corridor stretching from Manhattan, Kan., to Columbia, Mo., and a huge concentration of basic plant sciences and agricultural development from Columbia to St. Louis, our region is a world leader in applied biosciences and innovation.
Designed for the scientific and business communities, the summit will identify innovations that lead to new private sector investments and job creation and those that hold the greatest promise for intellectual property and commercialization.
"The goal is to accelerate the movement of new ideas from the lab to the marketplace," says MU Chancellor and Summit Chair Brady J. Deaton. "Our region must emerge as a world leader in bioscience research and job creation; the economy depends on it."
