Thanks to our generous supporters, we invested $260,830 into K-State cancer research and education this semester! We awarded faculty $124,200 for innovative research projects and $31,787 for laboratory equipment. We awarded graduate students $99,080 in summer stipends and $5,763 for travel to present their research at scientific meetings. The awardees are listed on our Faculty and Student Awardee webpages.
This was $135,000 less than requested by faculty to support their research needs. But we’re pleased to have helped and to know that they will leverage our support into larger national funding and prestigious honors, helping advance K-State to a top 50 public research university by 2025.
