NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs) in Human Cancer for Years 2010, 2011 and 2012 (P50)

Funding Contact(s): Jane Fountain, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Neural Environment

Brief Description:

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), invite new or renewal (competing) applications for P50 Research Center Grants for Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs). The program will fund 5-year P50 SPORE grants to support state-of-the-art investigator-initiated research that will contribute to improved detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of an organ-specific cancer (or a related group of cancers). SPOREs are expected not only to conduct a wide spectrum of research activities, but also to contribute significantly to the development of specialized research COREs, improved research model systems, and collaborative research projects with other institutions. The research supported through this program must be translational in nature and must always be based upon knowledge of human biology stemming from research using cellular, molecular, structural, biochemical, and/or genetic experimental approaches.
