College of Veterinary Medicine


The Midwest Institute for Comparative Stem Cell Biology exists to further basic and applied research in stem cells and related biotechnology in animals and humans and to extend that discovery through education and commercialization. The institute is uniquely situated to leverage research capabilities through collaboration among Kansas State University, the University of Kansas and the Kansas University Medical Center, and scientists with similar interests at other institutions.

The institute has strong potential for economic development and attainment of external funding. It positions basic research, discovery and development of specific applications, commercialization and education in a strong scientific environment with the further purpose of partnering with other research institutions and with corporate and governmental entities with related activities and interests.
