NINDS encourages applications for specialized programs of research excellence (SPOREs) in Human Cancer. This announcement is made together with 2 other NIH components.
The program supports 5-year 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 (centers of research excellence), improved research model systems, and collaborative research projects with other institutions. The research supported through this program must be translational in nature and must be based upon knowledge of human biology stemming from research using cellular, molecular, structural, biochemical, and/or genetic experimental approaches.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Jane Fountain, program director, Neural Environment Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1431; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-003.html.
