Johnson Cancer Research Center spring award applications due March 1

Submitted by Marcia Locke

Kansas State University's Johnson Cancer Research Center is now accepting applications for its spring semester awards for faculty and students. Information and applications are on the center's Award Programs webpage. Most applications are due March 1.

The center supports the innovative and collaborative cancer-related research of its faculty members in 20 departments across five colleges, as well as the training of their undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Center faculty members are eligible to apply for awards and sponsor applications of their students. K-State faculty who do cancer-relevant research but are not members of the center are invited to apply for membership by contacting the center's director, Sherry Fleming, Ph.D., at sdflemin@k-state.edu.

Several awards are being offered for faculty this spring. Innovative Research Awards provide seed money to gather preliminary data crucial for major grant proposals. The Cancer Research Collaboration of Excellence Award supports an integrated, multi-project research program that has a well-defined, central research focus on cancer.

A new award being offered is the Cancer Research Expansion Award, for associate members only, who want to expand upon their cancer-relevant research.

Modest travel awards are also being offered for faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to travel to learn new scientific techniques, visit collaborators or present at meetings. Graduate students are also eligible for Summer Stipends.

The Johnson Cancer Research Center, which is part of Kansas State University's College of Arts and Sciences, supports and advances cancer research, education, training and public outreach. Its awards are funded by private donations.
