The Vanderbilt SPORE in Lung Cancer consists of several initiatives including five scientific research projects, four 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.

The SPORE has developed great breadth in scientific capabilities that have addressed critical issues in lung cancer from basic laboratory investigations to clinical and prevention research. Lung SPORE investigators have received 17 NIH grants relevant to lung cancer and many more non-federal grants supporting their research in this disease, all as a consequence of the active translational research environment established by the Lung Cancer SPORE. Over 300 publications have been published in peer reviewed journals from lung cancer SPORE investigators on lung cancer, or pathways important to lung cancer.
