Tampa native chosen for cancer research project

Matthew Klenda of Tampa was chosen to conduct a cancer research project by the Johnson Cancer Research Center at Kansas State University.

Klenda is a senior majoring in biochemistry at Kansas State.

He is one of 50 students chosen for a project. The center’s Cancer Research Award program promotes undergraduate participation in laboratory research.

The award program, open to Kansas State undergraduate students, provides $1,000 awards to up to 50 students and $1,000 to their faculty mentor for research expenses.

Students applied for the awards in October by co-writing research proposals with faculty mentors affiliated with the center. The winners conduct their research in the mentors’ laboratories during the spring semester.
