The 2018 Life Science Industry Census shows an impressive 22% increase in employment in the life sciences industry in our region since 2015.
For every $1 invested through our research grants, $11.10 is generated in follow-on federal and private funding and returned to the region.
STEM students graduating high school entering life science careers earn 26% more than other industry sectors.
Science2Art is a platform for regional scientists to display and describe their research through the visual arts. Each of these remarkable images tells a personal research story and poetically captures the fieldwork performed by the scientists and their teams. These images were submitted by scientists from Columbia, Missouri, to Manhattan, Kansas. All proceeds from the Science2Art auction will be donated to STEAM education in KC.
