Cancer Research Highlights

The University of Kansas Cancer Center aims to do nothing less than fundamentally transform the cancer experience – to give all people in our region greater access to breakthrough ideas and novel treatments.

From deepening our understanding of cancer's biology to expanding cancer prevention efforts to ensuring patients' care continues after treatment, we are tackling cancer on multiple fronts. Beyond the Bench, an annual publication, highlights some of the latest, most innovative research efforts happening at the cancer center.
