Career Enhancement Program

Program Co-Directors:

Christopher Bakkenist, PhD
Tullia Bruno, PhD
Dan P. Zandberg, MD

By combining SPORE and institutional funds, the SPORE’s Career Enhancement Program funds up to two investigators per year, with one being a woman and/or URM awardee. The program’s new two-tiered review process ensures that the projects qualify as translational, are scientifically feasible and appropriately powered to achieve their stated aims, include a qualified mentor, and are appropriately budgeted. Each of the three Career Enhancement Program Co-Directors represents a different career stage and each has personally received funding from a SPORE career enhancement and/or developmental research program.
