Join us for an exciting project!

Purdue University’s College of Pharmacy and the Center for Cancer Research are teaming up to help fight breast cancer through the research of Dr. Michael Wendt and his team of researchers.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. In fact, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. When people rally together, powerful things can happen. Join us in helping continue the research that Dr. Wendt has started so we can continue to fight breast cancer together!

our mission

The Purdue University Center for Cancer Research brings together the best minds from within Purdue University and beyond to study cancers where they start — inside the cell. Using the combined expertise of scientists from disciplines as varied as engineering and veterinary medicine, biology, and chemistry, the Center for Cancer Research promotes discovery into how cancers develop, progress and respond to treatment. Our work leads to the advancement of new medicines, early detection and diagnostic methods, more effective treatments, and highly efficient drug delivery systems.
