Researchers in the Division of Oncology are funded by 2 prestigious NCI Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) grants as well as a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Specialized Center of Research award in Lymphoma.

Leukemia SPORE

Washington University’s Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) in Leukemia aims to develop novel biomarkers and treatments for leukemias and myelodysplastic syndromes. In this SPORE, we leverage our expertise in cancer genomics, immunology, and hematopoiesis to develop innovative translational research in leukemia. 

Pancreatic Cancer SPORE

The Pancreas SPORE investigators have expertise in basic and clinical sciences, and individual expertise in immunology, drug development, genomics and imaging to develop novel therapeutic approaches to pancreatic cancer.

Endometrial Cancer SPORE

The Route 66 Endometrial Cancer Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) is a collaborative translational research program that brings together teams from multiple institutions to develop and test new strategies for preventing and treating endometrial cancer.

LLS SCOR in Lymphoma

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Specialized Center of Research (LLS SCOR) award in lymphoma is multidisciplinary translational award focused on developing novel immunotherapies for challenging lymphomas and leukemias.
