Higuchi Biosciences Center General Fund

Private contributions really do make a difference to our program. Contributions to the Higuchi Biosciences Center fill in where state funds either are not available or cannot be used, and they allow us to react in a timely manner to special needs as they arise. These funds are especially helpful in the critical area of graduate recruiting.

The Higuchi Biosciences Center assists researchers involved in any area of bioscience or biomedical research at the University of Kansas. Participating scientists conduct much of their research in three major themes. These are molecular, cellular developmental biology and cancer; neuroscience and neurodegenerative diseases; and chemical biology and drug discovery. The center encourages collaborative research between departments as diverse as pharmaceutical chemistry and chemical and petroleum engineering. Many also combine efforts with the University of Kansas Medical Center and outside institutions.

For more details about individual participant and their groups, see the Participating Researchers list.
