Faculty and student researchers in more than 80 laboratories of 20 K-State departments are demystifying cancer by conducting cutting-edge studies on things like:

  • how cancer forms and progresses.
  • what changes occur in the genetic information of cancer cells.
  • the role of viruses in cancer development.
  • anti-cancer drug discovery.
  • potential methods of diagnosis and treatment.

More detailed information about all K-State's cancer research programs is on our Faculty Researchers page , which lists our faculty members with summaries of their cancer research.
