Welcome to the Wisconsin Head & Neck Cancer Specialized Program of Research Excellence!

The University of Wisconsin Department of Human Oncology and the UW Carbone Cancer Center, under the direction of Principal Investigator Paul Harari, were awarded Wisconsin’s first NIH-funded Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in August 2016.

The Wisconsin SPORE focuses on Head and Neck Cancer translational research, which means that the goals of each SPORE research project must link laboratory research (bench) to the clinic setting (bedside) and ultimately aim to improve overall outcome for patients with Head and Neck Cancer. The Wisconsin Head and Neck SPORE comprises four main translational research projects, three supporting cores and two pilot funding programs.
