In a push to spur economic growth and job creation, the Biden Administration has designated two future technology hubs in Missouri. In central and western Missouri, BioNexus KC aims to position the region’s largest concentration of animal health and nutrition companies as a leader in biomanufacturing. Several cities have been named in this KC BioHub, including Columbia, Jefferson City, Marshall, Warrensburg, Sedalia, Kansas City, and St. Joseph. President Biden promotes the effort.
Congress passed and President Biden signed the bill into law in 2022.
