SP3 (SPORE-Program-Project-Planning) Grant Pilot Award

Objective

The objective of the SP3 Award is to financially support a multi-disciplinary team of cancer investigators as they organize to develop a research program that will result in the preparation of competitive applications that meet all criteria required to receive an outstanding evaluation of their multi-project research grant application to the NIH SPORE or Program Project grant (P01) mechanisms. Applications that address basic and translational aspects of solid tumor oncology and include utilization of patient material are especially sought.
