Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in Pancreatic Cancer
The goal of the Pancreatic Cancer SPORE grant is to facilitate innovative research into the biology and therapy of pancreatic cancer. We continue to pursue this goal by assembling a critical mass of investigators dedicated to collaborative translational research, leading eventually to the elimination of pancreatic cancer in the United States and throughout the world. Toward this end, we have continued to fund our Developmental Research program with institutional funds. This approach has allowed us to discover and explore novel targets for treatment of pancreatic cancer – one of the most pressing needs for patients affected by this disease.
