Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs) in Human Cancer for Year 2006: The Organ Systems Branch of the Office of Centers, Training, and Resources, Office of the Director, National Cancer Institute invites grant applications for Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs) in organ-specific cancers. Applicant institutions are to demonstrate their ability to conduct translational research in the prevention, etiology, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of lymphomas and breast, gastrointestinal (GI), brain, head and neck, and prostate cancers. Translational research, as defined by the Program, uses knowledge of human biology to develop and test the feasibility of cancer-relevant interventions in humans and/or determines the biological basis for observations made in individuals with cancer or in populations at risk for cancer. The support for SPOREs is through an NIH specialized center grant (P50) mechanism. Required components of a SPORE (P50) grant application and grant include: a minimum of four translational research projects, cores, and developmental research and career development programs. A required core in a SPORE is a human cancer tissue core for the particular organ site that will benefit translational research. SPOREs foster extended collaborations in critical areas of research among laboratory and clinical or applied scientists. SPOREs are expected to have a robust research base in the respective cancer, good access to patient populations, and substantial commitment from their institution. Inter-SPORE collaborations and collaborations between SPOREs and other NIH programs are strongly encouraged. Each SPORE and the "network" of SPOREs are expected to conduct research that will have the most immediate impact possible on reducing incidence and mortality of human cancer. Eligible organizations include: for-profit or non-profit domestic organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of State government(s); units of local government(s); units of State Tribal government(s); units of local Tribal government(s); eligible agencies of the Federal government; and faith-based or community-based organizations. Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply for P50 SPORE grants. Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. The applicants will follow the instructions for the PHS 398 form (available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html), the current Program Announcement (PA), and SPORE Guidelines (http://spores.nci.nih.gov/). Because of the size and complexity of a SPORE, prospective applicants are urged to consult with the staff of the Organ Systems Branch early in the preparation of the application (see Section VII. Agency Contacts). Special instructions are needed for preparing a SPORE application and are available from the program contact listed under Section VII. Agency Contacts, or at http://spores.nci.nih.gov/. Each applicant (i.e., Principal Investigator) may only submit one application in connection with this program announcement. This PA addresses only SPORE applications for organ sites specified to be received in the year 2006. For further assistance, contact GrantsInfo, Telephone: (301) 435-0714; Email: GrantsInfo@nih.gov.
