At the Forefront of Inquiry 

At Kansas State University, we believe research is more than labs and statistics — it's knowing the right questions to ask. Our expert faculty conduct crucial research in the university's more than 90 research centers. In addition, K-State will work hand-in-hand with the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, or NBAF, which is being constructed at the university by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Our research efforts bring in more than $150 million a year annually, allowing us to be at the forefront of discovery in areas such as global food systems. 

As K-State works toward becoming a Top 50 public research university by 2025, it will remain critical to support, encourage and grow the research efforts of our faculty, staff and students.
