After a three-year site selection process, Manhattan, Kansas, was selected as the location for National Bio and Agro-defense Facility (NBAF). The facility is under construction on Kansas State University's Manhattan campus and is adjacent to the university's Biosecurity Research Institute. This strategic location places NBAF near important veterinary, agricultural, and biosecurity research and expertise.

NBAF will be America's foremost animal disease research facility. It is being constructed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and will be operated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The $1.25 billion facility is a biosafety level-4 laboratory and will replace the aging Plum Island Animal Disease Center in New York. NBAF is expected to be operational by 2022-2023.
