Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a bill that will establish a stem cell research center at the University of Kansas Medical Center. The new facility would work with adult stem cells and cells taken from umbilical cord blood.
Brownback signed the bill during a ceremony Monday at the Statehouse. He was joined by people who have successfully undergone medical treatments using stem cells.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture announced last week that it would move its offices from Topeka to Manhattan. Secretary of Agriculture Dale Rodman said officials at the Kansas State University Foundation made the suggestion.
