By Marcia Locke

Conquest is the annual magazine of K-State's Johnson Cancer Research Center. The 2017 issue contains layperson-friendly stories showcasing Ryan Rafferty's work to modify cancer drugs so they can both penetrate the blood-brain barrier and be less toxic, Nick Wallace's efforts to combat human papillomavirus-caused cancers, and undergraduate researcher Raquel Ortega's work on a cancer early-detection test.

Also featured is the "lab-on-a-chip" early-detection test being developed by two chemistry professors and supported by actor and K-State alumnus Eric Stonestreet. We also look back at the career of our past director Rob Denell, who retired last fall, and at our 15th Bascom Lecture delivered by a renowned HPV expert.

You can access the 2017 Conquest online or request a paper copy by emailing marcia@k-state.edu.
