The SPORE in GI Cancer


The Vanderbilt SPORE in GI Cancer consists of several initiatives including four scientific research projects, five cores that provide essential services to SPORE projects, a developmental research program to support pilot projects, and career development opportunities for physician-scientists in training.

Vanderbilt’s GI SPORE extends major translational research accomplishments of the previous grant cycle and redirects resources into emerging areas of opportunity identified in SPORE-supported pilot projects. Four projects and five cores represent a continuation of successful projects and establishment of new projects focused entirely on colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States.

The advancement of translational research in the GI SPORE is supported by additional initiatives including the Mouse Models of Human Cancers Consortium, the Ayers Institute for Pre-cancer Detection and Diagnosis, unique imaging techniques and proteomic screening.
