Kansas State University


Johnson Cancer Research Center Newsletter


It’s a busy time here at the cancer research center! Besides our regular fall activities–like our biannual advisory council meeting and award application deadline (Oct. 1)–it’s almost Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when many people reflect more on cancer and how they can help fight it. In addition to awarding research funds soon, we’re looking forward to several outreach, fundraiser and academic events…at which we hope to see many of you!

In this issue:

Proud to contribute to K-State’s success

The university recently announced that it netted record research funding in FY 2013. The news release recognized that “some of the largest grants have helped Kansas State University work to improve breast cancer survival rates and develop tests to detect cancer at its beginning stages.” The funds we’ve awarded our researchers to build their programs in recent years have been leveraged to about 25 times as much in outside funding. We thank our supporters for making that possible!
