Due to COVID-19, we have limited office staffing. The best way to communicate with us now is by emailing our staff members directly or our center’s general email address, cancerresearch@ksu.edu


The fight starts here! From nanoparticles and stem cells to antioxidants and drug discovery, Kansas State University faculty are conducting the basic and translational cancer research that leads to improved prevention, diagnostics and treatments, as well as training future scientists.

Scientists in nearly 100 labs are demystifying cancer from many angles.

Students are in training to become the next generation of scientists.

Information and resources are helping the public understand and fight cancer.

Fighting, ever fighting, for a cure!
