Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs)

In 1992, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) established the Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs), specialized cancer center grants to promote and speed up the exchange between interdisciplinary research in the laboratory to the treatment of patients in the clinical care setting.

SPORE programs allow laboratory and clinical scientists to work collaboratively to plan, design, and implement research programs with the greatest potential to impact cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment.
