COVID-19 Information for Researchers
Our philosophy as researchers is that while we all are anxious to get back in full operation, we value all our faculty, staff, and students who are part of our research activities and must ensure that their health and safety remain our paramount concern.
Since our research labs, sites, studios, and facilities have now been shut down for six to eight weeks, we need to conduct a careful and thoughtful reawakening process in order to resume operations while being mindful of health and safety guidelines and compliant with State and University reopening plans.

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.
