The MD Anderson Cancer Center Prostate Cancer SPORE Developmental Research Program provides initial funding for promising pilot translational research studies in prostate cancer. This Program emphasizes support for translational research projects that can generate clinically testable hypotheses to help reduce the incidence and mortality of prostate cancer or to improve the quality of life for patients with prostate cancer. Both clinical and laboratory research projects are eligible for funding. High risk/high payoff pilot projects are especially encouraged.
