The Wisconsin HN SPORE Team
HNC SPORE Research Projects
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.
Head and Neck SPORE Team Highlights Progress, Looks Toward Grant Renewal
The UW HN SPORE team recently hosted its third annual retreat and external advisory board (EAB) meeting. During this one-and-a-half-day event, team members highlighted the progress of SPORE projects and core support programs while soliciting feedback from the EAB as the team begins to focus on renewal themes for this five-year NIH grant.
Research Projects 1-3
Basic scientists team with Head and Neck Cancer physicians to advance the treatment and care of head and neck cancer patients.
The Administrative, Pathology/Biospecimen, and Biostatistics/Bioinformatics Cores provide support and important head and neck cancer resources for SPORE investigators.
HNC Pilot Award Programs
The Career Enhancement Program (CEP) and Developmental Research Program (DRP) fund innovative head and neck cancer pilot research projects.
