The Organ Systems Branch of the Office of Centers, Training, and Resources, Office of the Director, National Cancer Institute invites grant applications for Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs) in organ-specific cancers. Applicant institutions are to demonstrate their ability to conduct translational research in prevention, etiology, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of lung, genitourinary, prostate, or skin cancers. Translational research, as defined by the Program, uses knowledge of human biology to develop and test the feasibility of cancer-relevant interventions in humans and/or determines the biological basis for observations made in individuals with cancer or in populations at risk for cancer. Required components of a SPORE include: a minimum of four translational research projects, cores, developmental research and career development programs. A required core in a SPORE is a human cancer tissue core for the particular organ-sit!
e that will benefit translational research. SPOREs foster extended collaborations in critical areas of research among laboratory and clinical or applied scientists. SPOREs are expected to have a robust research base in the respective cancer, good access to patient populations, and substantial commitment from their institution. Inter-SPORE collaborations and collaborations between SPOREs and other NIH programs are strongly encouraged. Each SPORE and the "network" of SPOREs are expected to conduct research that will have the most immediate impact possible on reducing incidence and mortality of human cancer. Eligible organizations include: For-profit or non-profit domestic organizations, public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories, Units of State and local governments, and eligible agencies of the Federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations. Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessa!
ry to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their in
stitution to develop an application for support. The support for SPOREs is through an NIH specialized center grant (P50) mechanism.
