This program provides “seed money” for faculty who do not already receive extramural funding but intend to apply for future grants. More information and the application are available on our Award Programs page.
These awards help K-State remain at the cutting edge of research by helping purchase laboratory equipment and supplies. More information and the application are available on our Award Programs page.
This program supports travel of cancer research faculty and their post-docs, to visit colleagues at other institutions for the purpose of learning new scientific techniques. This helps K-State keep up with the latest technologies. More information and the application are available on our Award Programs page.
(seeking endowment for this named professorship)
This program supports the first three years’ salary of a newly hired tenure-track assistant professor. The goal is to increase the number of K-State faculty doing cancer-relevant research. The funds encourage and allow for a department, in anticipation of an open faculty line, to hire earlier if willing to recruit a cancer scientist. For more information, see the award programs page.
Testimony has been provided by center staff about research and training needs at K-State.
Efforts have resulted in the construction of Chalmers Hall, the home of the center’s administrative headquarters, and of biology and biochemistry laboratories and offices. The center continues to pursue donations that will provide state-of-the-art equipment necessary for research and training.
This was the first lab of its kind at K-State. Opened in 1980, thanks to a private fundraising campaign, this original lab is now joined by many others across campus in the quest for more knowledge about cancers.
