Alltech, University of Kentucky sign 'master alliance agreement'

Alltech and the University of Kentucky have signed a master alliance agreement that they believe will help generate annual research funding of $2.5 million within the next year, growing to more than $5 million annually by the end of the third year. The alliance is also expected to help the university enhance graduate training and support for post-doctoral fellowships.

The agreement focuses on three areas of collaboration:

  • Proposals jointly sponsored and conducted by Alltech and University of Kentucky scientists that will lead to research grants in a number of health and nutrition areas such as Alzheimer's disease and diabetes
  • Collaborative contracts for targeted research and development
  • Student sponsorships targeted to support research focusing on Alltech products
