K-State Olathe Int'l Animal Health and Food Safety Institute

Olathe
Kansas

From across the globe, this the first building on K-State's Olathe campus attracts people who are interested in protecting the world’s food supply and promoting animal health. K-State Olathe partners with existing educational institutions at an every level, from the Johnson County school districts and area colleges to other educational institutions within the Animal Health Corridor.

One third of the facility is dedicated to laboratory space available to private enterprises who want to collaborate with K-State students and professors. The remaining space is available for administrative and educational purposes including the area's largest teaching kitchens and a 125-seat auditorium.
