K-State Cancer Research Week presents Cancer Data Blitz today

Submitted by Sherry Fleming

The Johnson Cancer Research Center is hosting the 2022 K-State Cancer Research Week Sept. 12-17

On Tuesday, Sept. 13, the center will host its annual Cancer Data Blitz and Poster Session in the K-State Student Union courtyard. From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., faculty members will present their research and cancer information. There is a twist! Faculty members will only get two minutes and two slides to present their information on their research. It's a great way to try to make the faculty figure out how to concisely present their information.

Local emcee Dave Lewis will host the event. Lewis is one of the most dynamic and entertaining disc jockeys in the Midwest. He has performed at more than 2,000 shows in his career, which started in 1979. Lewis is an honorary Wildcat as the former longtime public address announcer for K-State football and basketball games. He is sure to bring his own special brand of entertainment to the Cancer Data Blitz.

In addition to the Cancer Data Blitz, the graduate student cancer research awardees will also present posters of their work.
