The following opportunities for philanthropic investment will help create and sustain success in the Johnson Cancer Research Center: 

Fund that supports the center

Cancer Research Fund F19300
This fund supports research and educational activities associated with cancer and related areas, including equipment, supplies, student stipends, travel and other expenses associated with these efforts.

Reasons to give

Find out more about why the Johnson Cancer Research Center needs your support and what funding areas are a priority now:

Recruit Cancer Scientists

The center supports the hiring of new junior faculty members. We would provide salaries for new faculty for periods of up to three years, after which the host department would assume this responsibility and the fund could then be applied to an entirely new hire. This would allow university departments to anticipate future openings (due to retirements and other natural attrition) and hire new faculty at an earlier date. The host department would be responsible for substantial start-up funds required to equip a laboratory and initiate a research program. Most importantly, the university would hire a new faculty member to do research in an area relevant to cancer, thus influencing the direction of future recruitment efforts and enhancing cancer research at K-State.

Innovative Research Awards

Innovative research awards support pilot studies that are expected to lead to major new externally-funded projects, and have a great potential to make a significant impact on our research success. The cancer center is not in a position to provide the central support for all cancer research at K-State. Extramural funding is critical.

Equipment Awards

Progress in cancer biology is driven by technological advances. We must ensure that our affiliated scientists have access to cutting-edge equipment. It is crucial in order to conquer cancers in our time. To acquire the latest equipment, we will make every effort to pursue opportunities that enable us to leverage contributions as “matching funds” in support of larger equipment grants.
