History

Built in 2002 for $12.2 million, Chalmers Hall is named after former College of Arts and Sciences Dean John Chalmers. It serves primarily as a modern research facility for K-State's Department of Biochemistry and Division of Biology. It is also home to the Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research, named for founder and longtime director Terry C. Johnson, who died of cancer in 2002.
