Vendor & Program Tables


Our mission is to lead the effort of supporting and growing Kansas’ bioscience ecosystem including bioscience research, commercialization, training, and business development. Through organizational and collaborative efforts, we provide meaningful content, connections, and advocacy to advance the state’s bioscience industry.

Innovation festival is a regional convergence of music and innovation featuring national, regional, and local music acts. The goal of the Innovation Festival is to raise the visibility of innovation happening in the Midwest to demonstrate that the region is a vibrant and welcoming area to live, work, and grow business. The three-day Innovation Festival includes a scientific conference with four tracks and a music festival. From this three-day event, we aim to recruit early career scientists to work or train in the region; demonstrate the power music and visual arts have in effectively communicating science and enhance STEM learning; provide an economic development resource; add value to the quality of life; and highlight bioscience, advanced manufacturing, and technology investment opportunities in the region.

Graduate Programs in the Biostatistics & Data Science Department at KUMC

The University of Kansas, as the state's flagship institution, upholds that research and teaching are mutually reinforcing. As such, the Department of Biostatistics & Data Science provides an infrastructure of biostatistics, statistics, analytics, data science and informatics expertise that supports and enhances the research, service, and educational needs of KU's Medical Center and affiliates. In addition to offering a PhD in Biostatistics, MS in Biostatistics, MS in Applied Statistics, Analytics & Data Science (100% online), and an MS in Health Data Science (online or in-person), they have 5 graduate certificates. Through partnerships with Rockhurst University, Emporia State, and Pittsburg State, a reduced credit hour MS in Applied Statistics, Analytics & Data Science is also available in the form of 4+1 degree plans. A representative from the department will be available during the K-INBRE Symposium for more information about these graduate degree programs and to answer any questions you might have.
