The Purdue University Center for Cancer Research was founded in 1978. We are a National Cancer Institute designated cancer research center. We study cancers of all kinds at the cellular level to discover how they develop, progress and respond to treatment. We find ways to detect cancer sooner and treat it more effectively in clinics. We share our work with scientists and physicians worldwide to save and enhance human lives. Join us today!
Both start and finish will be at the north end of Ross-Ade Stadium on Purdue's campus.
Ross-Ade Stadium on Friday, April 11th from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and Saturday April 12th from 7:00 a.m. until 8:15 a.m.
