The consortium, announced Feb. 25, combined the individual strengths and resources of the three institutions, and offers key opportunities, including:
- Facilitating research and pursuit of large-scale funding
- Improving educational opportunities for our students
- Accelerating the process of turning discoveries into clinical treatments
Our announcement received local and national media coverage in a variety of publications, including the Kansas City Business Journal, PR Newswire and Medical News. It represents a defining moment for KCU in that it both demonstrates our commitment to the advancement of science, as well as defines us as a steadfast collaborator in the biomedical research community of Kansas City.
