NINDS, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) invite applications for Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs) in cancer.

SPOREs conduct state-of-the-art research that will contribute to improved screening, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer.  These programs 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 by this program must be translational in nature.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Jane Fountain, Program Director, Neural Environment Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1431; email:  fountai@mail.nih.gov.  For a more detailed description of this program announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-08-020.html.
