Dr. Kinders is senior principal scientist at Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, Frederick, Md., where he leads the pharmacodynamics section in the laboratory of human toxicology and pharmacology. His section develops technologies for measuring drug efficacy at the molecular level, particularly in new drug trials in the Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis, NCI Clinical Trials network.

The K-State Alumni Fellows Program, sponsored by the Deans Council, the President’s Office and the K-State Alumni Association, recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers.

Dr. Kinders is expected to visit campus and give some talks on April 15 and 16. Watch our website, Facebook and Twitter for more details.
