From treating cancer to diagnosing Alzheimer’s to using drones to deliver aid, UMKC is leading the way in solving some of the world’s greatest scientific challenges.

The University of Missouri-Kansas City is a research university on the move. We play a major role in the Kansas City area as an educator, employer and research leader, but more broadly, we are at the forefront of some of the most important research happening across the country and around the world.

We invite you to ask yourself this important question: Which of life's mysteries are you itching to solve? It's a question that has driven our faculty, staff and students to some of their most important work.

A deep sense of curiosity is what drives us to ask the big questions, then find the answers.
