Apply for SPORE in Leukemia Grants

Applications are now being accepted for funding opportunities related to the Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) in Leukemia, led by principal investigator Daniel Link, MD, at the School of Medicine.

SPORE programs are key to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Cancer Institute’s effort to promote collaborative, interdisciplinary translational cancer research.

Awards of up to $75,000 are available. The funds are given through two programs:

  • Career Enhancement Program, which focuses on recruiting and supporting new independent investigators in translational research.

Career Enhancement Program applications are closed for 2021. The next cycle is anticipated to open in the fall of 2022 for a start date of July 1, 2023.

  • Developmental Research Program, aimed at supporting highly-focused projects intended to collect preliminary data sufficient to support an application for peer-reviewed research grants or future incorporation as full SPORE projects.

Developmental Research Program applications are due May 1, 2022, with a start date of July 1, 2022.
