The Kansas Bioscience Authority has awarded $10 million to programs aimed at expanding life sciences in the state.
Among the recipients announced Tuesday is the Wichita Center for Graduate Medical Education. It will receive nearly $6 million for a program leading to the creation of three new research centers.
Other recipients include Prairie Village-based NOW Technology, which gets $1.5 million to help commercialize technology that extracts products like fuel oil and mineral salts from municipal wastewater.
Colwich-based ICM gets $1 million for a bioenergy research project to bring cellulosic ethanol to the marketplace. And the University of Kansas Cancer Center was awarded $750,000 to hire three researchers.
The Legislature created the Kansas Bioscience Authority in 2004 to help create new jobs in the life science industry.
